We had this for dinner last night, and it was fabulous. Elegant enough for a dinner party, but simple to put together. DH won't eat crab, so I made it with the artificial stuff, and he loved it. I would have preferred the real thing, though. From the Italian Inn cookbook. Just had to add, I had some leftovers for lunch on a toasted English Muffin...Fantastic!
