    I have never known what to do with the imitation crab meat. This is the first recipe I have tried with it and my whole family gobbled it up, even the pickiest 2 and 4 year olds. I will definitely make again. Only problem was in the directions it says to add salt and basil but it never says how much. I just sprinkled some on... Delicious

      This was okay... I used brocolli instead of green peppers. It wasn't our favorite but it was good. It was a good change. I'm giving the other dish to my parents...I'm sure they will love it...they usually love everything I give them... (they get all my leftovers!)
