Excellent pasta my family loved it... I made a double batch... There are two things that I would alter for next time though... The recipe called for 1 full cup of the grated parm since i made the double and I only added 3/4 and the sauce still got very thick so I would definately tone it down and the other is I wasn't really a fan of the cayenne so I would either cut down on that or leave it out completely. But overall excellent and I would definately make it again.
My son said that this is more than a 5 star. He absolutely LOVED this. Of course, I tweaked this recipe a little. I one and a half timed this, but added more crab and more parmasan cheese. He said this truly rocked. Thank you AFWifey for this super recipe. He said, "it is filling and it is great."
I found this just a okay recipe for me. Personally I just found it a little too thick. It was good but just not what I was hoping for. This is the only dish I always eat at Red Lobster and this misses it by a bit. (jmo) I made the recipe as written and only added a clove of garlic. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
