Crab & Shrimp in mornay sauce over pasta

This is an old school recipe.  I had this one at Beggers Banquet in Louisville after winning big at the Derby.  At least that’s the name I remember but large quantities of beer were involved. This was the first time I had crab meat that I can remember.  It’s rich creamy although my wrinkle is that I didn’t use cream or milk. It has a little more spice that the original.  I hope you like it.
