It's another hot one today so last night I made this wonderful dish that requires basically no cooking at all. Boiling noodles and that is it. Doesn't get much easier than that!
I love crab salad. It's super easy and refreshing and by stuffing this into shells it is more filling. I will admit this makes a great sandwich or is great on top of a bed of greens. So if you want to ditch the pasta try it that way too!
Crab Salad Stuffed Shells
22 Jumbo Shells
1 cup Broccoli Florets, finely chopped
1 Garlic Clove, minced
16 oz package Imitation Crab Meat, chopped
4 oz Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup Sour Cream
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1/4 cup Finely Shredded Carrots
1 Medium Cucumber, seeded and chopped
1 Green Onion, chopped
1/2 Small Red Onion, diced
1 tsp Dill Weed
1/4 tsp Pepper
1/2 tsp Celery Salt
- Cook pasta according to package and drain well
- In a small microwaveable bowl combine broccoli and garlic, cover, and then microwave for 1 minute or until crisp tender
- Transfer to a large bowl and combine the remaining ingredients
- Stuff shells with filling, cover, and refrigerate overnight
You can prepare the filling the night before. Just put in the refrigerator and about an hour before serving prepare the noodles. I actually did that this time around and it turned out fine. Just make sure you drain the noodles and that they are cool before stuffing them. Then I refrigerated for about 1 hour before serving.
See I told you! Not to hard to make at all! And the best part....112 calories per shell! Enjoy!!
