Crab cake spaghetti: Silky strands of spaghetti noodles tossed with jumbo lump crab meat, plenty of old bay seasoning, red pepper, panko breadcrumbs and onion.
Heat a large skillet to a medium heat. Add 1 1/2 tbsp butter. Once butter has melted, add garlic. Saute for 1 minute until slightly softened. Add breadcrumbs and 1/4 tsp salt. Stir breadcrumbs to coat in butter and garlic. Toast until golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.
Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil. Season with salt. It should taste like sea water. Add spaghetti. Cook until aldente. Reserve pasta water.
Wipe pan clean. Add remaining butter to the bottom the pan. Once the butter melts, add onion, red pepper, celery, remaining garlic, and 1/4 tsp salt. Sauté until vegetables are softened, but still have a slight bite, about 5 minutes.
Add white wine, simmer until reduced by half. Add old bay and remaining salt. Use tongs to transfer spaghetti to the mixture. Reduce heat to low and toss the noodles with the vegetables. Make sure to reserve pasta water.
Add crab meat, parsley, and half of the panko. Gently toss. If needed, add pasta water to loosen the sauce up. Season to taste with salt and pepper,
