I loved this recipe. I make it all the time, especially if we're having company. Its filling and goes great with steamed brocolli and garlic bread. I usually use fat free sour cream and 1 package of crab and substitute shrimp for the other packet. Delicious!

I made this as written and it was pretty good. I would make it again but tweak it to my families preference. It was super easy to make

I have made this dish handful of times! But tonight I tried something different: instead of sour cream, try french onion dip! It eliminates having to chop the onions, and still provides that onion flavor. However, I did increase the milk to 1 cup, and left all other measurements the same. Excellant!

I loved it! The only changes I made were to use fat free sour cream and low fat milk and I cut it down for 2 people.

I never thought I found find this recipy again, after making it 2 years ago. Loved it, and want to make it ASAP! Found that cutting the crab into smaller parts made them disapear in the sauce. I served it over biscuits, and it was great!

Wow!! This is a fabulous recipe. The only changes that I made to this are: I use only 1/4 tsp of Italian seasoning, and I cut the pieces of crab meat into halves or thirds. I also use dried parsley instead of fresh. I triple this recipe, and freeze it. My son (age 3) gobbles up this dish in a hurrry. :)
