I made this for my boyfriend as a celebratory dinner, and it was so easy and fast that I was done before he got to my apartment! No matter - it tasted great and was a success. I recommend it!

I think as long as one goes into this recipe expecting the flavors to be subtle and simple you'll like it. I used real crab and followed the rest of the recipe for the most part. It wasn't outstanding but good for a summer "light" meal with salad and garlic bread on the side. Also good cold as leftovers. Crab doesn't usually reheat well. *Forgot to mention that I used thin spaghetti... I think that was part of my success. Linguine would not get enough of the flavors of the sauce and come out even more bland. Next time I may try with angel hair.

My daughters gave this a 4. I would say it is a 5. The olive oil and garlic added a nice flavor to the dish and it was simple to make.

This was so easy and simple! I really liked it. I used roma tomatoes and a little less pasta. Next time I'll try shrimp.

I feel like this would be good with maybe an alfredo sauce, which would naturally take away from the healthiness of it. It was just a little bland, but overall it was pretty good.

This didn't turn out well for me, but I changed it a little so maybe it is my fault. I used real, backfin crabmeat and whole wheat pasta. It was very dry and tasteless.
