  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add pasta, and cook until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, and add pasta to a large bowl. Stir in eggs, carrots, peas, shrimp, and crab meat. Cover, and refrigerate.
  2. To make dressing, stir together mayonnaise, milk, lemon juice, and sugar. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and paprika.
  3. Mix dressing into chilled pasta, stirring until well combined. If the salad seems dry, stir in more mayonnaise and a splash more milk or water. Cover, and chill before serving.

I tried this recipe for a family/friends get-together. I was sooooo embarassed. I didn't care for it. No taste, very bland. Couldn't give it no stars, so gave it one.

Have made it a few times because it was a big hit with the hubby. One thing I changed was amount of crab-I doubled it and used imi crab.

Despite mixed reviews I tried it, and I'm glad we did! My husband had 3 helpings. I used bowtie pasta, and imitation crab (double the amount). Otherwise, I followed everything, and it was great. It did make a lot, and most of my extended family doesn't eat seafood, but that was the only downside!
