Granchio Alfredo (Crab Alfredo)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Mims Squims

My husband loves crab alfredo, but we simply cannot afford to eat out all the time. This one tastes just as good as what we find at restaurants---and saves us money!

I used the alfredo sauce recipe here, and served with chicken instead of crab... I followed the recipe pretty much as directed, omitting the basil & sliced mushrooms. I used a whole grain linguine instead of fettuccine... The sauce was absolutely delicious -- tastes quite a bit like Marie Calendar's alfredo sauce. I used fat free cream cheese and light cream (what I had in the house), and granulated garlic instead of garlic powder. I will definitely make this again.
