DIRECTIONS

  • Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until al dente, drain, set aside.
  • Cook pancetta or bacon in a large saute pan over medium high heat until crisp. Remove bacon to drain on a paper towel, reserve the bacon drippings.
  • Saute the minced shallots and garlic in 2 TB of bacon drippings over medium heat until soft, 2-3 minutes.
  • Deglaze the saute pan with sherry, cook until nearly evaporated, about 2 minutes. Melt butter in pan. Add corn, cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in cream and tarragon, bring to a simmer.
  • Add pasta and bacon to pan, season to taste with salt and pepper. Turn off heat and gently fold in crab meat.
  • NOTE: My husband tells me this is delicious, but I am highly allergic to crab, so I used shredded lobster tail meat in my portion instead. Oh my word, it was awesome. Either way a winning recipe.
