How to Make Savory Crab and Shrimp Au Gratin

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook your macaroni as directed by instructions on the box. Drain and mix with 3 tablespoons of butter.
  2. In another bowl add soup, cheese, cream and mushrooms, stir to blend.
  3. Add the shrimp, and crab meat. Mix gently to keep from busting up the crab.
  4. Now the seasonings
  5. Now, blend the mixture with the macaroni.
  6. Spoon the mixture into a casserole dish, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. ( I used a 10 inch deep dish pie plate ) fits perfectly.

    Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
  7. Melt your butter and mix with the crumbs. Spread evenly atop the pasta mixture.

    I sprinkled the top with a few shakes of paprika.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes or till golden and bubbly.

    This casserole is great, served with a Caesar salad.
