“Simply put, delicious! A little on the decadent side, but it can be made with fat-free half-and-half and a heart-healthy spread instead of butter. Serve with garlic bread sticks, a nice salad, and a glass of Chardonnay.”

Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. Keep warm and covered.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook until garlic releases its aroma, about 2 minutes, being careful not to let the garlic brown. Stir in the flour, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Reduce heat, and cook, stirring constantly for about 2 minutes. Add the half-and-half and stir over medium heat until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the cream cheese and Parmesan cheese to the sauce and stir until cheeses melt and mixture is smooth. Mix in the crabmeat and continue cooking until crabmeat is heated through, about 3 minutes.
  4. Divide the fettucine between 2 plates or bowls and top with the crab sauce.

I have been looking for and testing different Alfredo Sauce recipes at home and at every restuarant out there. Thanks for this one. It is by far the best I've ever eaten and so easy to make. I did use the conversion to 2% milk because it's all I had in the house (7/8 cup milk plus 1 tablespoon butter). It still came out rich and thick. I left out the cayenne because i don't like the heat and added instead somewhere between 1/4-1/2 tsp of nutmeg, which all true alfredo sauce recipes call fo,r and that put it OVER THE TOP!! I confess I also added a little extra grated and schredded cheese because let's face it, you can never have too much cheese! The more I added, the better it tasted. I have also tried this sauce with chicken and broccoli instead of crab which was also very good. I will use this as a base for any recipe calling for an alfredo sauce in the future. My search is over!! THANKS AGAIN!!!!!

This is awesome! If you've ever had Red Lobster's Crab Alfredo, you won't feel the need to go spend that money anymore, because you can do it yourself at home for cheaper and it tastes the same if not better. This is the first Alfredo sauce that I have ever made, it was quick, simple, easy and called for stuff that I already had, so I didn't even have to leave my house. I LOVE THIS RECIPE! I changed one thing in this recipe after reading the reviews; instead of using 2 cups of half & half, I used 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of half& half!!!

This was really good! I did not have half and half so I used the whole milk/butter substitution suggestion listed on the tips and advice substitutions page on this site. I also doubled the recipe and used a little extra parm. cheese. Everyone loved it. I will definately make this again!!
