A little crab goes a long way with this creamy sauce. White wine and lemon juice help to cut the richness of the evapotated milk.

Loved the dish. double the sauce and crab used a pound and a half of pasta, but would leave it at a pound next time. I also added garlic salt instead of just regular.

Yummy. This is excellent! It takes abit to put together, but it is worth it! The sauce is flavorful without being overpowering! I added some chopped shrimp to it and think next time maybe soma sauteed mushrooms!
