Here's a quick and easy frugal recipe that my husband came up with years ago. This recipe makes a light meal, but its also quite filling. And, its delicious!


16 ounces spaghetti (regular or whole grain), cooked and drained
3 T. butter (you can also use olive oil, or half of each)
1 pkg. imitation crab meat
Salt and pepper


Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in crab meat. Cook to heat through, about 3-5 minutes. Add drained pasta and gently toss with crab mixture until combined. Add a dash of salt and pepper. Serve warm.
