Crab Fat Pasta with assorted mushrooms

The next best thing to having big juicy crabs on the dinner table is having a handy jar of Crab Fat (Aligue) in the fridge. My dad recently brought home two small jars of pure crab fat and i couldn't wait long enough to sample it.

Since my cousin mike, his wife martha and my niece Cloie will be coming over, i figured what a perfect excuse to cook crab fat pasta.
