I modified this recipe quite a bit and it turned out wonderful. No noodles. Instead of mayo, 1/2 cup of non fat sour cream and 1/4 cup of non fat mayo. Instead of bell peppers, I put asparagus (asparagus and shrimp are a no-miss combination). Yummy and extra low cal, witout the noodles.

Very good - easy to make. My husband loved it. The kids weren't thrilled however.....but they're hard to please. Next time I'll try crabmeat from the deli vs the canned.

Taste more wild if replace bread crumb topping with a layer of Swiss cheese and sprinkle the top with raw green onion after baking.

I was disappointed when I tasted it. It was very bland. A friend suggested putting some melted butter and lemon on it, and with quite a bit of salt and pepper it was good. I would make it again, but modify it more, maybe some lemon pepper seasoning and some non fat sour cream.

I very rarely have casseroles ( once in the last decade ). After reading the various critiques I doctored up the recipe to include more noodles, mayo, worchestershire sauce, ketchup, and onions. I added four times the amount of shrimp and cut back on the crab meat ( didn't have as much on hand ). I added a liberal amounts of hot sauce and paprika and one cup of sour cream. Contrary to some other opinions I didn't find this dry at all. It was moist, tasty and flavorful as far as casseroles go. The green peppers were fine and not crunchy. I crumbled croutons from a dressing box over the top. A good recipe !!

I agree that it was a little dry even though I added more mayo and some mustard. I put some horseradish in too. My family all agreed there was too much celery. I added some cheddar on top. I think it needs some sour cream or something to kind of bring everything together and make it more moist.

I found casserole to be very dry and bland. Not much flavor although I like all the things that are in it. This would not be one of my favorites

Didn't like this at all. I notice most reviews had doctored it up greatly.
