Jersey Shore Crab Sauce Recipe


Screen Shot 2016-08-09 at 1.34.34 PM



JERSEY SHORE CRAB SAUCE

 
There are plenty of Maryland Blue Crabs down on the Jersey Shore, as well as plenty of Italian-Americans. The two go together, and this Crab Sauce for pasta is a specialty of Jersey Italians who love seafood, along with their Brooklyn and New York neighbors. They all love it! So will you. 


RECIPE 

12 Hard Shell Blue Crabs 12 tablespoons Olive Oil 12 Cloves Garlic
1 for each Crab, peeled and chopped 1 Small Onion, peeled and chopped fine 
 1 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes 
 1 – 28 oz. can whole San Marzano Tomatoes 1 – 28 oz. can Crushed Tomatoes 
 1- 16 oz. can Tomato Puree 
 ½ teaspoon dry Basil 
 ¼ cup chopped fresh Italian Parsley 
 1 pound Lump Crab-Meat, fresh frozen or canned 
 1 pound imported Italian Spaghetti or Linguine 


 Put olive oil in a large pot and heat to high. 

Place the Crabs in the pot and sauté at high heat for 10 minutes. 

 After browning the crabs, remove from pan and set aside. 

 Put onions in pan and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. 

 Add the garlic and red pepper to pan and cook on low heat for 3 minutes. 

Add whole tomatoes to pan and cook on high heat for 4 minutes whole stirring with a wooden spoon. Add crushed tomatoes and tomato puree. 

Add the Crabs back to the pot. Cook for 90 minutes on low heat. 

 Remove the crabs from pan and let cool on the side. 

Remove all the meat from the crabs and discard the shells. 

Add crab-meat to sauce with your extra pound of lump crab-meat and simmer on low heat for 10 minutes. 

Cook pasta according to directions on package. 

Drain pasta and put back in the pot it cooked in with 8 tablespoons of reserved pasta cooking water. 

Sprinkle pasta with a little olive oil and mix. 

Add 2 cups of crab sauce and half the parsley to pasta and mix. 

Plate the pasta with sauce on 4 plates in equal portions and top with some more sauce and some parsley. 


 Notes: Do not serve with cheese! Italians never have cheese with Seafood Pasta. This is enough sauce for 2 to 3 pound of pasta, or about 12 portions, so after you make this Pasta with Crab Sauce with 1 pound of pasta, you still have plenty left over for another day.

FATTORIA dell CORTI


Le Corti Estate stretches out over a hillside covered with vineyards, olive trees and woodland. It is set in the very heart of Chianti on the main road from Florence to Siena, only 16 km south of Florence. The Renaissance Villa, one of the finest in Tuscany, stands on the highest hill in the very centre of the estate. The Italian garden overlooking the valley and the vast fourteenth century wine cellars and oil jar-storage, built into the embankment in the garden, complete the picturesque scenario. The Estate has two farm-house holiday structures - Gugliaie and Sperone - which offer those seeking to immerse themselves in the green hills of Chianti Classico the possibility of absorbing nature, history and culture in one. 

The splendid landscape, heightened by striking centuries-old architecture permeated with history, is further enhanced by extensive vine and olive cultivations, which stretch as far as the eye can see, and by the elegant Italian garden and romantic gardens of Villa Le Corti, heart of the Estate. Guests are ideally located to discover the Tuscan countryside and its products and to organize wine and food tasting excursions in the Chianti area.

The CHIANTI FOOD & WINE SAFARI




TOUR DESCRIPTION:


A unique day trip from Florence, we will eat and drink our way through Chianti, renowned not only for its wonderful red wines, fresh local produce and traditional cuisine, but also for some of the best landscapes in the country. We will enjoy wine tasting and wonderful food stops along the way. This tour is a must for wine connoisseurs and novices alike and make sure to bring a good appetite with you!

With your expert guide, enjoy a comprehensive introduction to the region and its wines while touring two of the region's best wine estates. As you sample the winery’s signature wines, you’ll receive tips about the art of wine tasting and pairing wine with food.

Our first stop of the day is at a beautiful winery belonging to one of the most prestigious Italian aristocratic families. Here we taste three wines paired with salumi (cured meats) and two olive oils but first, there’s a fascinating guided tour of the historic wine cellars and to the olive mill through underground tunnels that pass under the villa.

Now buckle-up and get ready for some off-roading through ancient woodland and rolling hills, outlined with cypress trees and dotted with rustic farms and churches, to make our way to a typical Tuscan restaurant with stunning views. Here is where we will really get your taste buds tingling with delicious food and wine. You will not want to leave!

To visit the final wine estate we go deeper into the Chianti hills and enjoy more incredible countryside on our way to a Chianti Classico vineyard. As a contrast to the established winery of the morning, this one is smaller and less known though does have award winning wines which you will taste paired with cheeses as you find out how ancient tradition and innovation have been combined to create them. The unique beauty of this area will add to the unforgettable memories you will have created so far. The perfect way to end the perfect day!
