Red Lobster Crab Alfredo
1 pint half and half
4 ounces unsalted butter
2 tablespoons cream cheese
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
1 teaspoon garlic powder
8 ounces crab lump meat
16 ounces pasta cook according to package directions
In a saucepan, melt butter. When butter is melted, add the cream cheese. When the cream cheese is softened, add heavy cream and the Parmesan cheese. Add garlic powder and stir well. Simmer for 15-20 minutes on low. You may wish to season with a little salt and pepper.
Normally, cream cheese isn't used, but it does help thicken the sauce up without much difference to the taste. You can omit it--just be prepared to stay with the sauce a little longer to thicken it.
Boil crab legs as you normally would in boiling water. Crack open legs, dab meat lightly with paper towel to remove excess water, and place the meats on top of the alfredo sauce and pasta.
