Recipe of The Day: Spinach and Imitation Crab Pasta


I had a package of imitation crab and wanted to find a recipe that I could make using the crab and some pasta. I searched the net for something that looked appetizing. I came across a bunch of different recipes, and kinda just threw some stuff together and winged it. In the end, this is what I came up with . It actually came out pretty good! I will be adding this to my recipe box.!

Spinach and Imitation Crab Pasta

Prep Time: 15-20 Minutes
Cook Time: 20-30 Minutes
Servings: Feeds a family of 4

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup imitation crab cut into small chunks (I use the flaked kind)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 tablespoon sour cream
1/2 medium onion
1 cup frozen spinach
half pack of spaghetti noodles
1 tablespoon Herb De Provence
1 teaspoon Italian Season
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
1 tablespoon butter

(all seasonings can be modified to liking)

In a saucepan, add butter and onion over medium heat. Cook onion until tender. Add in cream of mushroom, spinach and seasonings. Let simmer a bit, add in imitation crab. Let sauce mixture simmer about 15-20 minutes. Make sure everything is mixed well. Cook noodles as directed. Plate noodles and pour sauce directly over noodles, enjoy!

For clarification: Herb De Provence is nothing but Basil, Marjoram, Thyme, Sage, Savory and Rosemary. Now if you do not have access to all of these, that’s ok. You can only use Italian seasoning, or if you have some use those. We just want to get that herb taste in the dish. I’m sure it would also be great with fresh herbs as well!

    Do you really have to have Herb De Provence? Can you use like parsley or chives? Or leave it out altogether if you don’t have any?
