Didn't think you could improve on a classic? Just add melt-in-your-mouth crabmeat to an old favorite.

Ingredients

8
ounces uncooked fettuccine
2
teaspoons olive or vegetable oil
1
garlic clove, finely chopped
1
small red bell pepper, chopped (1/2 cup)
2
teaspoons Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1 1/2
cups evaporated skimmed milk
1
pound imitation crabmeat, cut up
1/4
cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon pepper
1/8
teaspoon ground nutmeg
Grated Parmesan cheese, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Cook and drain fettuccine as directed on package.
  • 2 While fettuccine is cooking, heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook garlic and bell pepper in oil about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until bell pepper is crisp-tender. Stir in flour. Gradually stir in milk. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered until mixture thickens.
  • 3 Stir crabmeat, 1/4 cup cheese, the salt, pepper and nutmeg into bell pepper mixture; heat through. Place fettuccine in serving bowl. Pour crab sauce over fettuccine; toss well. Sprinkle with cheese.
Tips  

Imitation crabmeat--also known as surimi--is made from minced whitefish. After bones, skins and most of the fat are removed from the whitefish, the fish is blended with other ingredients and shaped into logs or chunks. The resulting faux fish is still tasty--and much less expensive than the real thing.

Change the tune of this Italian classic when you try spiral pasta, such as rotelle or rotini, instead of the fettuccine. You'll have Creamy Crab Spirals!
