"I sometimes have unexpected dinner guests, so I keep the ingredients for this easy microwave entree on hand," relates Beverly Callison of Memphis, Tennessee. Prepared pastry shells overflow with a creamy combination of canned crab and mushrooms. "I serve this with a packaged salad and receive lots of compliments on the meal."
