  1. Melt the butter in a heavy skillet over medium-low heat, turn the heat to low, and cook for about 5 minutes, straining off any milk solids, until the butter is caramel brown in color. Pour in the wine, garlic, paprika, sage, and ground ginger, and cook and stir about 5 minutes, until the sauce has reduced and the garlic is barely golden. Lightly fold in the crab.
  2. Bring a pan of lightly salted water to a boil over medium heat, and drop in the pasta. Cook until just tender, about 4 minutes, and drain.
  3. Place the pasta on serving plates, and drizzle each serving with olive oil. Spoon the butter-crab sauce over each plate, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, garnish with parsley, and serve immediately.

Very good recipe. I didn't have any white wine (we're red wine drinkers in this house!), so I added 2 Tbs. of lemon juice instead. Worked out perfectly. Thanks for the recipe!

This recipe is incredibly light and bland. I would have given it 1 star, but because it will be so easy to jazz up in the future (like, 10x the garlic, 3x the spices and champagne!) I will give ...
