Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 cup chicken, fish or vegetable stock, clam juice, or water
4 tablespoons butter
12 ounces lump crab meat, picked over to remove any shells
1/4 cup flat Italian parsley leaves, finely chopped
1 pound linguine, spaghetti or other dried pasta of your choice
