3-29-18 Cavatappi w crab-corn cream sauce

I wanted to try something different tonight.

1.     Cavatappi pasta
2.     Frozen corn
3.     Lump crab meat
4.     Whipping cream
5.     Olive oil
6.     Shallots
7.     Celery
8.     Garlic
9.     Sundried tomatoes in oil
10. Dried dill, basil, and tarragon
11. Old Bay seasoning
12. White wine
13. Chicken broth

PROCESS: I did this on the fly, so nothing is carved in stone.

Saute the shallots, celery, and garlic in olive oil. Add a bit of broth and about a cup of corn, along with the herbs and 3 or 4 finely chopped sundried tomatoes. If it gets too dry add more broth, or some wine. Then add the crab and let it simmer. I add the cream at the same time I put the pasta in the boiling water. Stir frequently, and when the pasta is ready add it to the sauce.


Patience, the inhouse food critic gave this a 22.
