Crabmeat Saffron Fettucini

Christmas dinner was a little different. I will make this again but put my own touch to it.  I will post it as I change it.  We thought it was not full of enough flavor.  Kinda boring and blah....try it, you may like it!
1/8 tsp saffron
1 Tbsp sherrt
1 stick unsalted butter
2 Tbsp shallots, chopped
3 cups whipping cream
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp white pepper
1 pound fresh lump crab meat, shells removed
1 pkg fettucini cooked and drained
1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped

Mix saffron and sherry, set aside.  Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat, add shallots and saute until soft, stir in cream.  Turn heat to low, simmer on low until reduced, about 30-35 minutes.  Stir in sherry mixture and simmer 5 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.  Gently stir in crabmeat and warm only, so not cook.  Add pasta and toss ocer ow heat.  Sprinkle with fresh parsley.  Enjoy~
