    This casserole is very good, easy to make & quick too. My husband put his on toast & I put mine on a whole wheat flatbread. Hubby says its a keeper!!

    Just started the new year diet and had this casserole for dinner. We used the imitation crab chunks, and it was excellent. This is an great recipe even if you are not on a diet, and I wouldn’t hesitate to serve it to friends. I give it a ten!
