Fettucine Marvini with Crab

Fettucine Marvini with Crab recipe

If you're on a diet, skip this recipe & make this one instead. If you want something insanely delicious keep reading.

I used this buttery garlic linguine marvini recipe for the base of this recipe & I added some lemon zest & crab meat. I know you're not supposed to have seafood with cheese but it tastes good so I won't judge you if you don't judge me.

Super huge happy birthday wishes for my awesome sister-in-law, Marie! Happy birthday lady! Hope you have an amazing day & an incredible year! Love you.  xx


  • 1 pound thin linguine
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 20 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup butter, cut in small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
  • several sprigs fresh basil (about 14 leaves)
  • 1 cup cooked crab meat

Make it!
  1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté until golden brown, about 2 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to low and stir in the butter, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and 3 tablespoons of the Parmesan. Remove from heat.
  4. Add the basil. Toss the warm pasta with the sauce. Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan.
