    Creamy Pasta Salad with Crabmeat

    1/2 cup each light sour cream and light mayonnaise (not fat free)
    1 tablespoon each freshly squeezed lemon juice, honey mustard and minced fresh dill (dill optional)
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    12 oz medium shell pasta, uncooked (about 5 cups dry)
    1 lb lump crabmeat (real or imitation), chopped
    1/2 cup each diced red and green bell peppers
    1/2 cup chopped green onions

    In a small bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, honey mustard, dill, salt and pepper. Refrigerate dressing until ready to use.

    Cook shells according to package directions. Drain well. Rise with cold water and drain again. Transfer pasta to a large bowl. Add crabmeat, bell peppers, onions and dressing. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

    This will make your eyes roll back in your head, it's sooo darn good

    I use imitation crabmeat that I "pull" like you would pork or beef and you can't tell the difference between that and real.

    Geri, this makes a LOT in one batch. You might have enough to share AND keep for later.

    I also wanted to tell everyone, I only use maybe 1/2 tsp. of dill as a Tablespoon is so overpowering, you lose the other flavors.

    I think I'm going to add pampered chef dill mix. A nice fresh tasting dill seasoning.

    Geri, did your family like it? Did you have enough left over for yourself? Just wondering............

    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    Geri, I make a double batch of dressing but I completely forgot about that.....I like really wet pasta. Sorry I forgot to mention that. Will go back and edit the recipe. Thanks for reminding me.

    (oops, couldn't do it.)

    Judy, it's hard to say. It makes enough to fill a 4 quart bowl but if you're feeding 6 17 year old boys....it will be gone in no time. If you take it to a church covered dish or picnic with lots of other food, it will feed many. Sorry I can't be more specific. Ask Geri how many her batch fed?
