  • Ranch Dressing from above
  • 16 oz bag noodles (like small shells, corkscrews, etc)
  • 1-2 lb imitation crab (some people like lots, some not as much)
  • 16 oz broccoli florets


  • Make the dressing first, cover and keep in fridge. Cook the noodles until al dente, drain under cold running water and place in large bowl.
  • While the noodles cook, steam the broccoli until just tender, then drain under cold running water and place in the bowl with the noodles.
  • Do not let the noodles or broccoli get mushy.
  • Chop the crab into small bits and add to the bowl.
  • Pour the dressing over the top, mix in, and refrigerate for an hour or more to completely cool and allow flavors to blend.
