Alfredo sauce is a rich sauce of butter, Parmesan cheese, and heavy cream. If you like, top each serving with lots of freshly ground black pepper.

  • Servings: 4 servings

Ingredients:

½ cup Butter
2× 6-oz cans White Crabmeat, drained and flaked
⅓ cup Chopped Fresh Parsley
1 cup Heavy Cream
½ cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
2 oz Cream Cheese, softened and cut into cubes
1 cup Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
8 slices Bacon, crisp-cooked, drained and crumbled
1 lb Dried Angel Hair Pasta, cooked and drained
Fresh Parsley Sprigs, optional

Directions:

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add crabmeat and parsley. Cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Slowly stir in cream, Parmesan cheese, and cream cheese. Cook and stir about 3 minutes or until thickened. Fold in Monterey Jack cheese; heat about 1 minute more or until cheese is combined. Fold in the crumbled bacon. Serve immediately over pasta.
