sauté just until translucent add the roasted garlic-
sauté 1 minute-

for a minute or two-the mixture will thicken slightly-
Add the crab and heat through-
season with salt and black pepper to taste-
toss with the linguini and garnish with the parsley and
finish with black pepper and parmigiano regianno cheese.
For the vegetarian dish
Add the butternut squash with the shallots and sauté until soft then proceed the
same adding the tofu when the crab would be added.
This would be excellent with a wonderful German Mozel W ine or a glass of Bison
Brown Ale. Remember these dishes are from my heart for your stomach with love-
Always try what you think you can’t do and push your self to the limit-you may be
surprised at how great you really are-if only to your mother!!!!
