    NorthwestGal's Note:

    Time and budget friendly! This is a simple-to-prepare dish with plenty of spices and tasty ingredients to make a creamy, cheesy crab and asparagus noodle casserole. It’s great for busy nights when your time is limited but you have a hungry family waiting for dinner. Adjust the horseradish and red pepper flakes to whatever level of spicy pleasure you can tolerate. I hope you enjoy it.

      We absolutely loved this recipe. I used fresh white asparagus and my own home made gluten free egg noodles but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. It turned out perfectly, and I'll definitely make it again.
      Thanks for sharing this yummy idea :)

      I used fresh steamed asparagus instead of canned asparagus in this. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. This was the first recipe from RSC that I picked to try, because it sounded like something I would enjoy. However, the flavors somehow just didn't come together for me, and I found it to be pretty hot (spicy).....and I generally like spicy dishes. Thanks for sharing your recipe, and I appreciate the efforts you took to create your recipe!
