Crab Alfredo

This recipe for crab alfredo was originally going to be pancetta alfredo because pancetta was on sale.  Except, when I got to the store I couldn’t find it.  (The perils of living in a small town.)  So, I improvised… and it turned out to be delicious.  It’s a quick and easy weeknight dinner that tastes like you’ve slaved over the stove.  I won’t tell.  Enjoy.

    If memory serves me right I think I slaved over the drive making this one lol. Bet you never thought you would get me eating crab and other creatures from the sea huh. Was pretty good though.
