Balsamic Crab Pasta

This is one of my favorites. Coincidentally, this is one of the easiest things I make too. You can whip this up in 15 minutes flat. And it is so tasty and awesome that your family won't believe it only took you 15 minutes. But don't tell them that. Serves 6.

1 pound crab meat. chopped (imitation crab is what I use, but the real thing would rock)
3 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil (pure, light or extra virgin, your choice!)
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar (a little more if you wish)
1 pound package of pasta, your choice (I use penne, rigatoni or rotini)
Parmesan Cheese (optional)

First off, get a pot with water, add in a little bit of salt and oil, and bring to a boil. Throw in your pasta.

While that cooks, mix your oil and 1 tbsp vinegar and heat that in a separate pot. Add your garlic and saute till a little bit brown. Add in your chopped crab meat, Italian seasoning and pepper.

Tip: balsamic vinegar has a strong flavor and a little goes a long way. But if would like more of it in your food, by all means! You will know once you get a whiff of balsamic vinegar. Trust your judgment.

When the pasta is done, drain and add to the pot with the crab. Add the other 1 tbsp of vinegar. Mix everything together thoroughly and serve. Top with a little parmesan cheese if you like.

DONE! Chow down. 9 points a serving.
