Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Rinse and clean the Whole Crab (4). Cut the crab in half or quarters, depending on the size, with the legs still attached.
Step 2
In a heavy bottom pot (like a Dutch oven), add 3-counts of Olive Oil (to taste) and heat to medium heat. Add the Garlic (3 clove) and cook until fragrant, about 45 seconds.
Step 3
Add the crab, toss in the Olive Oil (to taste) and the garlic, and saute for 4 - 5 minutes.
Step 4
Add the Pasta Sauce (2 jar). Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, and allow to simmer for 45 minutes. Stir occasionally and maintain heat to prevent burning.
Step 5
Just as the sauce has thickened and all of the flavors have incorporated, bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Boil the Spaghetti (8 ounce) according to package directions.
Step 6
Serve the sauce over a bowl of pasta. Be sure to supply plenty of napkins, knives to crack open the crab legs, and a bowl to discard shells. Serve and enjoy!
