I've been saving this for a rainy day. I had this at a friends house, begged for the recipe and got it. I have not made it myself yet. Serve with Classic Caesar Salad and warm Garlic Bread Sticks. UPDATE-I cleared up the instructions-give this one a try, it's wonderful!

Although I agree with rexiblue's rather harsh suggestion that the sauce should be made by the method shown in her link, I want to make a bit of a correction to THAT version! Cover the bottom of the baking pan with some sauce before adding the first layer of pasta. This sounds really good! I'll have to try it with another cheese--can't stand brie.
The recipe printed here is horrible. Don't even try to make the sauce like that. If you want the correct recipe go to BHG.com---The recipe at BHG.com was excellent! I added a little tarragon to the sauce and used half crabmeat and half imitation lobster chunks. Here's the link to the correct recipe http://www.bhg.com/recipes/recipedetail.jsp?recipeId=R036518
