How to Make It

Step 1    

In a small nonreactive heat-proof bowl, cover the sun-dried tomato halves with the boiling water and set aside until softened, about 20 minutes. Drain the tomatoes and chop them coarsely.

Step 2    

Fill a large pot with water, cover and bring to a boil. Meanwhile, in a large nonreactive saucepan, heat the olive oil. Add the shallot and garlic and cook over moderate heat until softened but not browned, about 5 minutes. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and cook for 1 minute. Add the wine and boil over high heat until almost evaporated, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Gently stir in the crabmeat and oregano and cook until heated though, about 2 minutes. Remove from the pan from the heat and add the butter; stir until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 3    

Add salt and the farfalle to the boiling water. Cover partially until the water just returns to a boil, then uncover, stir the pasta and cook until al dente.

Step 4    

Drain the pasta and transfer it to a large warmed serving bowl. Pour the crab sauce over the farfalle, add the chopped parsley and toss well. Serve at once.

Serve With

A tossed green salad.

Suggested Pairing

The crisp and flowery flavors of the Ronco del Gnemiz Tocai Friulano highlight the delicate sweetness of the crab.

Review Body: This is a nice dish that complements the delicate flavor of crab.  Putting in the butter off the heat was a good idea.  I used fresh basil instead of oregano and it worked well, and I did add some parmesan to enrich the sauce.
