Crab Alfredo with Spinach
This was another one for the bf.
1/4 c. olive oil
1 lb. fettuccine
2 tbsp. butter
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. flour
1 c. milk
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese
1 can crab
1 c. frozen spinach (either chopped or whole)
Bring medium sized pot 1/2 full of water, pinch of salt, and olive oil to boil. Break fettuccine in half and cook in simmering water until desired consistency. Drain and set aside.
Melt butter in separate pan. Stir in flour and salt and cook for 5 minutes. Slowly stir in milk and cook until it begins to thicken on medium-low heat. When thickening begins, add cheese and continue to stir until desired thickness is reached (if sauce is TOO thick, thin down with more milk).
Add crab and spinach. Pour over pasta and top with more Parmesan cheese! Enjoy!
Note: PLEASE do not use jarred alfredo sauce. It's awful.
