      Hi there Glitter, I made this last night and it was superb. I used fresh mushrooms and also added a clove of garlic to the onions. I also used some sherry, since I thought that would be a nice addition. This dish is even nice to spread on warm french bread slices. Thanks so much for posting your recipe! --Marla, AZ

      I made this using fresh mushrooms which I sauteed in the butter before adding the flour. My onions were pretty large so I only used one. Then I used cooked angelhair pasta instead of rice. Poured the crabmeat mixture (including the white wine!!) over the angelhair in my casserole dish and baked as directed. Glitter - this was fabulous - So rich and creamy tasting!!! I served this with a salad and some toasted garlic bread. Definitely be making this again!
