1 (16 oz.) pkg. imitation crabmeat, bite-size pieces

8-10 oz. baby sweet or petite frozen peas

1 T. dill weed (we aren’t fans of dill, so I will probably not use)

1 hard-boiled egg, sliced (opt.)

  • Cook the macaroni according to directions on the box. Rinse the cooked macaroni with cold water and drain. In a large mixing bowl, combine the macaroni, crabmeat and peas. Gently fold in mayonnaise and dill. If desired, you can add more mayonnaise or dill. Garnish with hard-boiled egg.
