Top-ranked recipe named "Pasta - Crab or Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo"

Share it:

Tastes decadent, but it's actually based on a recipe from Cooking Light. Serve with a steamed vegetable or salad and a nice Chardonnay.

"Surprisingly easy and delicious...a keeper for sure! If you love crab, this is a nice variation with no butter...the delicate crab is complimented by the sauce."
