Krab Rolls and Broccoli Pasta Salad

Wow-November is upon us! I can't believe that this year is already mostly gone. Oh my!!!!! Hope everyone's year has been good. Ours has been interesting for sure! There's never a dull moment in this house for sure!!!

Tonight I made a meal that would hopefully counteract all the sugar we've had the past few days. I didn't want anything to time consuming or something that required turning the oven on. I have to say that Barefoot Contessa (Ina Garten) was the inspiration for this meal. I just love her show.

Bon Appetite!

Krab Rolls
1 bag imitation krab meat -hey if it's cheap where you are use the real thing, otherwise this was a great substitute
1/2 C red onion, finely chopped
1/2 C mayo
1/4C light House Italian dressing
1/2 small lemon, zested and juiced
1/2 C shredded cabbage (optional)

Mix mayo and dressing in small bowl. Add onions, lemon juice and zest to krab in medium bowl. Add mayo mixture and combine trying not to break up the krab too much. Top with parsley.
Refrigerate, the longer the better on this one. Serve on hot dog buns with cabbage. The cabbage gives it a nice crunch and is a great alternative to lettuce.


Broccoli Pasta Salad
2 C frozen broccoli, steamed
1 C cheddar cheese, cut into chunks
1/2 C red onion, chopped finely
8 oz short pasta, cooked and drained (I used ditalini that I had leftover from another meal)
1/2C fat free house Caesar dressing

Place all ingredients into medium bowl, stir to combine. Chill and serve.

This is a good one to make early in the day and let it sit until ready to eat it. Even my really picky eater ate this-I was amazed! I hope you enjoy it!

Ooh, my husband would love those krab rolls - he absolutely loves imitation crab meat (and I don't not love it myself...). :-)
