I've got a quick and tasty pasta salad recipe for ya.
My mom gave it to me years ago, and I just love it.
I use imitation crab meat, but feel free to use the real McCoy. I'm sure it would be, fabulous.
I usually whip this up for lunch, but would be great as a side dish for supper.
Pasta Crab Salad
8oz. Tri-colored rotini (Veggie Spirals)
8 oz crabmeat, hand shredded or chopped
1/2 cup red or green pepper, chopped
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1 small Roma tomato, chopped
1/2 cup Miracle Whip
1/4 cup Italian Dressing
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
Salt and Pepper
Cook pasta according to package directions, in salted boiling water.
While pasta cooks, prepare vegetables and stir together with crabmeat. In a small bowl, mix miracle whip, Italian dressing, cheese and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Add drained pasta to the vegetable/crabmeat bowl. Pour dressing over the top and gently stir to combine. Adjust seasoning if necessary.
Serve with more cheese and green onion if desired.
