Amazing Crab Stuffed Pasta Shells

I was making these for Easter this year and didn't fully like any of the recipes I found, so I came up with this one from ingredients from about 10 recipes. These are very filling, so you may want to slice in half before serving. Or, I did see some large pasta shells (not the stuffing ones) about 1/4 the size and thought these would be better.

    It's not that I hate this recipe; I think it's terrific with some serious adjustments...a LOT more scallion, a LOT less cayenne, a LOT more lemon, and skip the crab in favor of chunk white tuna (just because crab is too expensive to hide in this creamy rich sauce.) I would also use a different pasta; I don't think the shells are a good fit.

    These are really good. Made them exactly as directed. I make them every year for Christmas Eve and I used to buy the crab filling from the deli and they never tasted like this. Now, they are a favorite of everyone who eats them. Thanks for a great recipe.

    Next time, I'll make it a little less spicy, and put more filling in each shell, and it'll be perfect.
