Crab and Shirmp Pasta

I had some leftover imitation crab to use up from making sushi. I added it to my standard garlic shrimp pasta that we have at least twice a month.

Crab and Shrimp Pasta

1 lb spaghetti
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp butter
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tbsp tuscan spice blend
3/4 of package of imitation crab meat
1 lb shrimp
Pecorino Romano cheese to garnish

Prepare pasta as directed on package.
Add oil and butter to large saute pan.
Finely dice garlic, and add with red pepper flakes and spice blend.
Saute for 2-3 minutes.
Dice the crab and add with shrimp to saute pan.
Cook until the shrimp turn pink and curl up looking like the shape of a C.
Drain pasta and add to saute pan.
Combine pasta and sauce.
Serve with freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese.
