Creamy Crab Pasta – Healthy & Delicious

Lately, I have been trying to come up with healthy, delicious recipes because my body is just not shedding weight as quickly as it has in the past. Creamy Crab Pasta not only is delicious, but it is also super healthy, despite it’s naughty sounding name.

This is not only one of my favorites, but it is husband approved. There are few recipes that get my husband to rave about it and then to be stuck in a dilemma. Eat it all now, or save it so that he can enjoy it again tomorrow?

So, because I want this to be super easy for you, the recipe is below. I’ll add pictures when I make it again. But, delicious!

If you’re into not having to go grocery shopping, I included all of the available ingredients from Amazon Pantry down below.

  • Wheat Pasta (Spaghetti works great)

  • 2 cups Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 4 Tablespoons Flour

1. Crab of the Creamy Crab Pasta

While it is heating up, Pour 4 Tablespoons of Olive Oil in a frying pan on low heat. Saute minced garlic until it starts to sizzle. Put crab or imitation in with garlic and allow the crab to absorb the garlic flavor.

2. Creamy of the Creamy Crab Pasta

Also, while waiting for pot of water to boil. Pour 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Mix in 4 Tablespoons of flour or until it starts to form a paste.

Once a paste has formed, pour in milk. Allow it to heat up until it thickens. Add in salt and pepper to taste and the red pepper flakes.

Put the pasta on your plate first, then the cream sauce and then the sauteed crab on top. Spicy, creamy, sweet, delicious.

I included the Lindt chocolates, because first of all, DELICIOUS! Second of all, Stracciatello happens to be one of my husband’s favorite gelato flavors from Italy. And since this is Italian… enjoy your indulgence!

How to Make Healthy Pasta Carbonara

Fill up a large pot with water, salt it and place it on top of a burner on high.

While water is heating up, pour some olive oil on a frying pan. Turn the heat to medium low.

Usually while the oil and water are heating, I chop up ham. You can use deli ham. In the picture below I'm using a ham steak. It really doesn't matter what kind of ham you want to use.

Once the oil has had a chance to heat up a little bit, dump the chopped onions or minced garlic in and heat until the onions are soft or the garlic is sizzling. At that point, dump in the cut up pieces of ham and allow the bacon to cook.

Put wheat spaghetti into boiling water. Cook Al Dente. While this is happening, just allow the ham and garlic to keep simmering together. It will start to bubble and look foamy creating a perfect symphony of flavor.

Drain the water from the spaghetti pot when it has cooked so that there is just barely a crunch when you taste the spaghetti (al dente). IMMEDIATELY, dump the spaghetti back in the pot and crack the eggs into the steaming hot pasta. Stir the spaghetti, coating it all with the eggs.

There will be little bits of cooked eggs throughout the pasta. Pour the olive oil, bacon and onions into the pot with the pasta as well. Stir. Serve with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
