White Sauce Crab Pasta

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by karen

This is a creation of my own that resulted from too much white sauce when I made another recipe from here. So, I played around with what I had in the house and came up with this tasty meal. It actually uses imitation crabmeat instead of real crab. It's very mild, so feel free to spice it up if you prefer.

We really enjoyed this dish...I added some Parmesan cheese on top...it did seem to need additional spice so sprinkled some Johnny's seafood seasoning and that made a bit difference...loved that it used imitation crabmeat...very inexpensive dish to prepare...served it with a salad and some garlic bread...made for "Went to Market" tag game...
