Olive Garden Seafood Pasta Chowder

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Michelle S.

I found this recipe on a website somewhere. My friends and I used to go to Olive Garden on Fridays just to get this soup....FORGET the salad! It may seem abit tedious but it's really not. I sometimes use imitation crabmeat AND throw in some extra baby shrimp.

I have to admit, I was a little worried about using the Newburg mix, but no need. This recipe is really good and very mild. I liked the flavor of the green onions added at the end. I used lump crab meat which was wonderful in this dish. The pasta made it a very filling dish - we just had a salad with it. The next day, I needed to add a little milk, because it had thickened overnight, but it was still delicious.
