We eat a lot of fish and seafood in our home. It's lighter then chicken or steak and fish is versatile to use in everyday recipes. We also love pasta and angel hair pasta tops our list of the best. I found this recipe on Deep South Dish and made a few minor changes, like adding mushrooms, to give it a nice twist of my own. After all, I love an adventure in my kitchen.

1/2 pound of angel hair pasta

Bring water to a boil for pasta, add a pinch of salt and a tablespoon of olive oil to prevent sticking. Boil for according to package directions.
Meanwhile heat butter and olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add the green onion, garlic and mushrooms to the skillet and sauté until soft.
Simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the pasta to sauce and stir to mix thoroughly. Add the crab and heat it through. Next, add the pasta and parsley and just gently toss to blend.
What a delicious dinner!!! I added a small side salad to get in my greens and I think salad pairs well with any pasta dish.
