Quick Crab Alfredo

 Quick Crab Alfredo
I use canned soup and sour cream to hurry along a rich sauce that coats imitation crab. When spooned over penne pasta and garnished with grated Parmesan cheese and minced fresh parsley, it's an easy entree that looks and tastes elegant.—Susan Anstine, York, Pennsylvania
