    Hey Jude's Note:

    This recipe calls for king crab legs but Dungeness also works really well. It's best to use frozen crab so that you can defrost it on your own schedule. Also, add in other stuff, such as sliced green onions or fresh basil leaves or even sliced jalapeno peppers if you like. This is a Chicago Tribune recipe.

      I added basil and used 4 cloves of garlic...for one serving. YUM! I used reduced fat margarine, and a dash of lemon juice. I also used snow crab, it was sweet and wonderful. My noodles were fettucini, and I also added parmesan cheese.

      Wow, I was amazed at how good this was. I thought I would need to add pepper or cheese, but it was so good right out of the pan, I just gobbled it up. I used fake lump crab, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. Very light and tastey. Thanks Jude!
