Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package.

Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan and heat the cooked crab meat. Pour in wine and cream and bring the liquid to a boil. Add the lemon juice and lower the heat. When the pasta is al dente, drain it and pour the pasta into the sauce. Add diced tomatoes, parmesan and parsley, and toss it to combine.
