    Bone Man's Note:

    I like to eat supper outdoors, in my Grotto (The Ancient and much-Revered Ospidillo Grotto!) and this is a great, easy casserole that I can enjoy there. And did you notice? There's no red meat in this dish. Lots of flavors and there's no can of soup in it either! I'll bet your family will like it just fine. Who gave me the recipe? I drank too many beers in the Grotto and I don't remember! Sorry!

    1. 1
      Cook your pasta in lightly salted water (about 2/3 of a pound, dry) until tender and drain. Set aside.
    2. 2
      In a large saucepan, over medium heat, saute the bell pepper and scallions in 2 tablespoons of the butter until tender.
    3. 3
      Blend in the flour and salt into the pepper-scallion mix, stirring constantly. Gradually stir in the pre-warmed milk. Bring to a boil.
    4. 4
      Cook and stir the boiling sauce until it thickens and then remove from heat. Stir in the tomato and parsley. Stir in one cup of the cheese until it melts, then, stir in the pasta and crabmeat.
    5. 5
      Transfer this mix into a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish which has been sprayed with Pam. Cover and bake in a pre-heated 350-degree F. oven for 20 minutes.
    6. 6
      Melt remaining butter and toss it with the bread crumbs.
    7. 7
      After the casserole has been in the oven for 20 minutes, remove it and sprinkle first the buttered bread crumbs over it, and then the remaining cheese (on top of the crumbs).
    8. 8
      Bake UNCOVERED for 5-10 more minutes. The top should be golden brown.

      I played around with this a little bit...I didn't see that the monterey jack cheese was supposed to be pepper jack cheese until I got home from the store, so the casserole didn't have the heat from the peppers. Probably because of that lack of heat, I needed to get a bit more flavor in the sauce, so I put in some Old Bay seasoning. I also added some green peas for color. Otherwise, I made as directed, and the members of my family (the ones that don't mind their food touching)all enjoyed it. Thanks!
