    erinBOberrin's Note:

    This is a recipe I made up one night with the ingredients I had on hand. It's very quick to make and it has a great deal of flavor from the "crispy" garlic. Try alternate/additional veggies -- mushrooms, red bell pepper, zucchini, spinach, artichokes, peapods, etc. Or substitute shrimp or scallops for the crab. Most dry or fresh pastas would work in this recipe.

      I made this for my boyfriend as a celebratory dinner, and it was so easy and fast that I was done before he got to my apartment! No matter - it tasted great and was a success. I recommend it!

      I think as long as one goes into this recipe expecting the flavors to be subtle and simple you'll like it. I used real crab and followed the rest of the recipe for the most part. It wasn't outstanding but good for a summer "light" meal with salad and garlic bread on the side. Also good cold as leftovers. Crab doesn't usually reheat well. *Forgot to mention that I used thin spaghetti... I think that was part of my success. Linguine would not get enough of the flavors of the sauce and come out even more bland. Next time I may try with angel hair.

      My daughters gave this a 4. I would say it is a 5. The olive oil and garlic added a nice flavor to the dish and it was simple to make.
