I learned many years ago how to make linguine with white clam sauce and have made many many variations using many types of shell fish. This one is especially delicious.

How to Make Shrimp and Crab-meat pasta


  1. Dice the onion, green pepper and garlic, shred the cheese. Put the water on to boil and add the spaghetti when it does.
  2. At the same time heat enough of the olive oil in a saute pan big enough to accommodate the spaghetti when it is done. When the oil is hot add the onion,green pepper, garlic and red pepper flakes. When onions are clear( do not brown) add the shrimp and stir fry them.
  3. While the shrimp are cooking, drain off your cooked spaghetti and toss with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil.
  4. When the shrimp are done(just when they turn pink. Do NOT OVERCOOK, because they will keep cooking in the pasta)Put all the pasta and the rest of the olive oil in the pan with the shrimp and using two spoons or tongs, toss well. If it seems a little dry add a little more olive oil.
  5. Then add the asiago cheese and keep tossing so it melts evenly and coats all the pasta.
  6. Add the crab meat and black pepper. Continue to toss until the crab is evenly dispersed.
  7. When you plate the dish you will have to pick up the shrimp and put it on the pasta because it falls to the bottom of the pan.
  8. Serve with a salad, some white wine. The combination of the crab and asiago makes it melt in your mouth!
