1 (16 ounce) package
grated Parmesan cheese
Fast and easy. All four of us liked it. I did make a few modifications: I added a little wine after sauteing the garlic and onions to soften them a bit, threw in a chicken bouillon cube with the milk, and added some chopped chives in top of each serving. These all probably helped to boost the flavor a bit.
I like the fact that you get the creaminess, but don't have to add the fat by using milk instead of cream. I will make this again, and would serve it to guests.
Well, I have to say that I was disappointed with this dish. It was extremely tasteless. I managed to upgrade it to 'decent' only by adding quite a bit of garlic powder, Old Bay seasoning, salt, pepper, and parsley. I did like how nicely the sauce thickened, but I don't think I'll make this again. Thanks anyway!
I read the other reviews about the sauce not being rich or thick enough, so I substituted about half heavy cream and half milk, I added a bit more garlic, parmesan (the real fresh stuff not the kind in the shaker can), and added some pepper and LOTS of Old Bay Seasoning. It was almost too thick so I added more milk. VERY delicious! I loved that this was sooo easy to make! I also found that it was more than enough for 6 people, I would say it should easily feed 8 people.
This is basically alfredo sauce...with crab in it. And you really can't go wrong with alfredo. I didn't have any onions, so I omitted that step. I did add some garlic saltpowder...because I LOVE garlic!! And added a bit more parmesan than called for. I also adjusted the recipe to two servings (because I only had one can of crab meat on hand)...it actually made more like 4 servings with plenty of sauce to go around. I've never added crab to my alfredo before...but it was pretty tasty. I think next time I'll throw in some green onions and perhaps fresh tomatoes for color...I'm a firm believer in adding green onions in with any sort of crab dish!
I added a little more salt and pepper to kill the blandness and also added frozen broccoli. The sauce was very thick, but good. The leftovers were better than the original!
This is a deceptively simply basic recipe with lots of potential! After reading other reviews I tried some additions to "up" the flavor. I browned 4 oz of bacon with the onion, then added some fresh spinach at the end with a can of real crab. Altogether it was a hit with adults and kids alike, one of whom is an Italian exchange student! Buon Appetito!
This recipe was pretty good. i added about a cup of peas, a bunch of green peppers, mushrooms and extra garlic because i love garlic.... it was not too bland but i think without the extra stuff it might have been a little on the bland side.
This was a very quick and easy recipe but I think it needed some veggies, next time I will add broccili and red pepper.
