Angel Hair Pasta with Crab and Spinach

Just a quick post today for the pasta we had for lunch.  I had some leftover crab meat and thought a pasta dish would be delicious.  Cooked shrimp would work well too with this recipe.

  • 6 o.z. angel hair pasta
  • 3 o.z. fresh spinach
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups crab meat
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 Tbs water
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions until desired tenderness, add spinach to pasta during last minute or two of cooking.  Drain pasta reserving 1/2 cup of liquid.  In skillet melt butter.  Add cayenne, garlic, pepper, crab and reserved pasta water.  Heat to a simmer; mix cornstarch and cold water add to liquid stirring until thickened.  Pour over pasta, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and stir.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
