Imitation Crab and Pasta Alfredo Bake

"This is by far my favorite "main dish" casserole I made this year using some of my overabundance of squash from my first vegetable garden. It's creamy, delicious and, best of all, easy."

  1. Delicious recipe! Very basic ingredients that have a wonderful flavor when combined. The ability to prep ahead of time, and yummy leftovers have made this a quick favorite in my home. <br/><br/>Also, I enjoy the flexibility. Add a diced jalepeno for kick, or shrimp for additional meat, or any other veggies you can find. This will definitely be a frequent dinner for us!
  2. We love this! I use a 12 oz pkg of rotelle pasta and I saute the veggies and add about 1/2 c diced red bell pepper. It divides between 2 8" pans and freezes like a dream for OAMC cooking.
  3. This was delicious! I sauteed the veggies a little while the pasta boiled to save time and added a little lemon pepper. Definitely will have again.
  4. This was really good. I deviated from the recipe some, included bell peppers like another reviewer suggested. I'm not sure if I added bread crumbs or dried parsley but I know that the richer flavors in this bake would probably mask their presence anyway. I'm not into spicy stuff so I left out the red pepper flakes. I worried that the flavors wouldn't come out but they all complemented each other very well. Gonna make it again tonight.
  5. OK so I woulda shoulda coulda taken a photograph but there's none left. That's how good it was and so super easy. Thanks for a great time saver after a long day at work!


I love food, but do not have many years of cooking experience. I am just starting to experiment with both cooking and growing my own vegetables, fruits, and and herbs. I am also a lifetime member of Weight Watchers, so I am always trying to find recipes that are both within my Points guidelines as well as delicious.
