Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. Keep warm and covered.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until aromatic but not brown, 2 minutes. Stir in flour, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Reduce heat and cook, stirring constantly for about 2 minutes. Add the cream and stir over medium heat until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.
Add cream cheese and Parmesan and stir until cheeses melt and mixture is smooth. Mix in the crab and continue cooking until crab is heated through, about 3 minutes.
Divide the fettucine between 4 plates and top with the crab sauce.
