    Linda's Busy Kitchen's Note:

    This scrumptious pasta dish will tickle your taste buds, with a nice blend of veggies, seafood, and cheesey sauce atop mounds of pasta. Served with Garlic Italian bread, a simple salad, and a nice glass of wine, makes this meal fit for a king.

      This is really good!!! I've had dishes somewhat like this, but they've never had this variety of vegetables in them before, and I loved this variety! Next time I might try adding some garlic to this dish for added 'zip' :-) I had to add a bit more cream to this as it got a little too thick. :-) Maybe I'll try adding just a tad less cheese next time. Thanks for the recipe!!!

      My first posted review posted Jul 31, 2003, 2 of 2 I made the whole recipe it was just to good! Only 2 of us at home to eat it. I could have eaten this rich wonderful dish my self but boy I would have gained so much.So off to work it went with my DH. Got so many complements. I have a request to make it for the annual work picnic.And I will make it. The only change was I used a 1/2 cup of flour. I made this again and seen that butter is posted twice in the ingredients?? But not in the directions. I added some butter to the oil to brown the crabmeat. I really enjoyed this recipe.

      I made this according to the recipe. It turned out to be very bland. Cooking the vegetables in the cream sauce did not really seem to be a good idea. Perhaps if there were some garlic in the sauce, or if the vegetables were steamed and added on top at the last minute, their flavors might come through more strongly. (Just my thoughts.)
