This is my first experiment with Dreamfields pasta. It tastes good, but it has a sticky substance all over it after cooking. I'm a little concerned that the pasta might cause some digestion problems for me so I will eat only a small portion of this salad at a time.
You can use any kind of crab meat in this. I found a 6 ounce pouch of jumbo lump crab meat near the fresh seafood counter at Wal-Mart. It's nicer than any canned crab meat I've tried and has better texture and flavor than the Chicken of the Sea pouches I've tried. I had to drain off a little liquid, but the Chicken of the Sea brand was nearly all liquid for about the same price, I think, and it only has 3 ounces per pouch.
