  • 8 oz spaghetti
  • 16 oz imitation crabmeat chopped
  • 1 c. frozen peas thawed
  • 1 c. broccoli florets
  • 1/2 c. chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 c. sliced green onion
  • 3/4 c. fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1/3 c. reduced fat Italian salad dressing
  • 3 T grated Parmesan cheese


  • Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and rinse in cold water. In a large bowl combine pasta, crab, peas, broccoli, pepper and onion.
  • In a small bowl mix together mayonnaise, salad dressing and cheese. Pour over pasta mixture and toss to coat.
  • Cover and refrigerate 2 hours.



  • Store this in the refrigerator in an airtight container until ready to serve.
  • This will last 3-5 days in the refrigerator when stored properly.
  • If your salad becomes a little bit dry after sitting for a few days just add a bit more salad dressing to it. You can also toss the noodles in oil after cooking them to reduce how much dressing they will soak up.
  • Do no allow this salad to sit out more than two hours when serving it.
  • If you are letting it sit out at a party we recommend making an ice bath for it by sitting the bowl of salad in another bowl that has ice and water in it to keep it cool.
