AMAZING King Crab Leg Pasta

On Christmas Day my parents surprised us with some Alaskan Kind Crab Legs and they were delish!

There was only so much that we could eat though and we were left with 1.5 lbs of shelled meat at the end of the night. Not waiting to waste anything I made the most amazing King Crab Leg Fettuccine Pasta dish for dinner the night after Christmas! 

pound fettuccine
tablespoons butter
tablespoons chopped garlic
Grape tomatoes
canned artichoke heart halves
cup dry white wine
pint heavy cream
cup grated Parmesan cheese
pound king crab leg meat
tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Drain and reserve. 

Heat butter in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds. 

Add tomatoes and saute until lightly browned. Add artichokes and toss with tomatoes and garlic. 

Deglaze the pan with wine for 30 seconds. Add cream and Parmesan; simmer to reduce and thicken for 1-2 minutes. 

Add crab and reserved fettuccine and toss to thoroughly heat and coat. 

Divide among 4 pasta bowls or plates and sprinkle with chopped parsley.

I used the remaining 1/5 lb of crab meat in a hot dip for a dinner party that we hosted last night and it was also AMAZING!!!
