How to make Crab Alfredo
Step 1: Following the package directions, cook the linguine in a large pot of salted boiling water until al dente. Drain when done and return the cooked linguine to the pot.
Step 2: Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, add the garlic and cook for about a minute until aromatic. Whisk in the flour until golden. Then, pour over the heavy cream and chicken broth. Allow the mixture to simmer for approximately 3 minutes until thick. Now, add the Parmesan and let it melt for about 2 minutes.
Step 3: Season the mixture with Old Bay, salt, and pepper. Add the parsley and crab meat, then toss to coat. Finally, add the linguine. Mix until completely incorporated.
Step 4: To serve, garnish with Old Bay, parsley, and Parmesan, and squeeze with lemon. Enjoy!
