Instructions

Prepare the oil by heating it in a small skillet until it reaches a temperature of medium-low. Following the addition of breadcrumbs, continue stirring the mixture in a continuous manner for roughly two to three minutes, or until the breadcrumbs assume a toasted appearance. Following the removal of the dish from the fire, the chopped parsley should be incorporated into the dish, and then it should be left at room temperature, uncovered.

These breadcrumbs can be prepared three to four hours in advance and stored without being covered in order to maintain their room temperature. This will allow them to be kept at room temperature.

In accordance with the instructions given above, prepare all of the remaining materials. Once the garlic has begun to soften and the anchovies have dissolved, add the olive oil, butter, anchovies and oil, garlic, and crushed red pepper in a big skillet and sauté over medium-low heat until the garlic begins to soften. From time to time, stir.

Add half a cup of chopped parsley, followed by half of the crabmeat, and stir until the crabmeat is well covered. One to two minutes more of sautéing.
As you pour the wine into the pan, scrape the bottom to remove any brown bits. Once the tomatoes, salt, and black pepper have been added, whisk the mixture until it is completely incorporated.

Bring the tomato mixture to a simmer, and then continue to cook it, uncovered, for around ten minutes in order to decrease the sauce and make it thicker. While this is going on, bring a big pot of water to a running boil. The pasta should be added once the water has reached a boil, and the mixture should be stirred regularly.

Put the pasta in the oven for two minutes shorter than the time specified on the package, or around two minutes before you believe it is ready to eat. Always make sure to set aside at least one cup of the water from the starchy pasta.

Transfer the pasta that has been cooked along with around half a cup of pasta water to the pan. Add the remaining crabmeat and chopped parsley to the pan as well. Toss the mixture thoroughly, enabling the pasta to finish cooking in the scrumptious flavours of the sauce. When additional moisture is required, add more pasta water to the mixture.

After ensuring that the pasta and sauce are thoroughly mixed together, remove the dish from the heat. The dish should be transferred to serving dishes, a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil should be applied, and fried breadcrumbs can be sprinkled on top just before serving. Best wishes for a delicious meal!

Notes

This recipe calls for lump crabmeat, but nearly any grade of crabmeat, including claw, backfin, or large lump crabmeat, can be used because it produces good results. However, lump crabmeat is the favoured method of preparation for this dish. On the other hand, imitation crabmeat is not something that should be used when preparing this dish.

It is possible to use crushed or pureed canned tomatoes in order to obtain a sauce that is more silky smooth. Using diced is another option that can be considered. In order to boil one pound of pasta, you should use a large pot that contains between five and six quarts of water. Bring the water to a boil before adding the salt.

This is a prerequisite for adding the salt. It is recommended that between 1 1/2 and 2 tablespoons of salt be used. For the pasta, water is absolutely necessary! Add the additional moisture that is necessary to finish cooking the pasta to the sauce while it is still cooking.

This will allow you to obtain the additional moisture that is required to finish cooking the pasta. In the event that you do not have any spaghetti on hand, substituting any other type of long pasta, such as linguine, capellini, or bucatini, for spaghetti is a viable option.
