Fancy name for crabmeat and pasta. This dish kinda put me in mind of the Red Lobster crab alfredo, but still a bit different. None the less, delicious and easy. I ALWAYS have a can of lump crabmeat in the pantry and this dish is just wonderful for using it!

A while ago my cat got sick and my vet told me to buy some clam juice and sprinkle it over her food to see if I could get her to eat. It didn't work and I ended up with an (almost) full bottle of clam juice and no idea what do to with it. This recipe was perfect since I love white sauce pastas but find them too rich for my tummy in recent years. This one was pretty rich, but not too much. I subbed angel hair pasta for the linguine, skipped the salt & pepper (honestly I forgot about it since it never mentioned it in the directions) and used cilantro instead of parsley (since that is what I had in the fridge). Oh, and I didn't have any fresh lemons so I used a few squirts from store bought lemon juice. This was really great even with all my changes.
