    pattyp's Note:

    Easy pasta salad using surimi (imitation) crab, pasta and poppy seed dressing. Pasta shells or gemelli will work, but rotelli is easy to pick up with the crab and I like the colorful pasta. If you only have a sweet poppy seed dressing, add some red wine vinegar or lime juice to give it some tartness.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cook the noodles al dente, rinse and cool. I like to gently remove the water from the noodles by tossing with paper towels in my hand -- they hold the sauce better.
    2. 2
      Rinse the crab meat and separate into bite sized pieces.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, combine the crab, mayonnaise, poppy seed dressing, salt & pepper.
    4. 4
      Add the noodles and a handful of the cheese to the crab mixture and combine.
    5. 5
      Refrigerate for at least an hour, and add more parmesan to the top to serve.
