-8 ounces rotini noodles
-2 cups broccoli flouretts
-8 ounces chopped imitation crab meat
-1/2 cup green onions, chopped
-1 cup roma tomatoes, chopped
-1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
-1 cup Zesty Italian salad dressing
-2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours


Bring three quarts of water to a boil. Add rotini noodles and boil until just tender. Remove noodles with a slotted strainer, place into a colander and rinse.
Place the broccoli into the noodle water and boil until the broccoli turns a bright green; drain.
Place noodles, broccoli, crab meat, onions, tomatoes, mayonnaise, salad dressing, and Parmesan cheese into a large bowl. Stir gently until completely combined.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Cover and refrigerate for two hours for the flavors to combine.
May need to add more mayonnaise and salad dressing, if it looks too dry after being refrigerated.

Note: This recipe doubles easily and is a great one to take to barbecues
