2 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

6-ounce can crab meat
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon dried parsley
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
1 pound fettuccine, cooked according to package instructions
Pecorino-Romano cheese, grated (as much as you like), for garnish
Handful of freshly chopped basil, for garnish
Place clams with juice into a medium-size saucepan and set on low heat. Add butter and
extra-virgin olive oil
and stir until butter is melted. Add shrimp, crab meat with juice, garlic and parsley. Stir gently and simmer until bubbling and hot. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Turn off heat and add cooked fettuccine to saucepan and gently combine. Allow to sit covered for five minutes to let the flavors mix with the pasta.
