This is yummy. Takes no time to put together. Note: the recipe doesn't say when to add the chicken stock, so I added it with the wine. I had to use canned crab (store didn't have fresh) but it was still really good this way. :)

Thank you so much Ed & Theresa for this recipe! It's so great to indulge in a crab and pasta dish that tastes so great and is low in fat! I didn't measure my leaks; I just chopped the white and light green parts of 2 small ones. I used 8 oz of fresh lump crab meat. This recipe is a keeper.
