Reviews for Sea Shell Crab Casserole
"This recipe has been a family favorite ever since it was first published in 2001!"
"My husband and I thought we would have liked this better without the crab,maybe with leftover turkey instead,but our 17 month old grandson devoured it,even the olives! I used penne instead of the shells because I already had it in the house."
