this was delicious and simple to prepare. the only thing i did differently was to add some tabasco sauce for heat, and i cooked it in 1 large au gratin pan , my individual pans are very small and i didn't want the crab sauce to overflow. i cooked it in the oven for 20 minutes, then put it under the broiler for 2 minutes to slightly brown the top- nice main course, i served it with brown rice
