"Great company dish! And easy!"

Ingredients

1/4 cup butter
1 medium green pepper, cut in strips
1 medium red pepper, cut in strips
1 pound mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups half-and-half ("lite" can be used)
1 can (equal to 7 ounces) crabmeat, drained, boned and flaked; reserve juice
2 tablespoons butter, melted
3 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

Melt 1/4 cup butter in Dutch oven over medium heat. Add peppers and mushrooms and cook 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with lemon juice and salt. Cook 3 minutes, stirring or tossing occasionally.

Add half-and-half and reserved crabmeat liquid. Bring to a boil. Combine 2 tablespoons melted butter and flour and blend until smooth. Add crabmeat and simmer 1 to 2 minutes or until crabmeat is heated through. Add to first mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste, if additional is needed.

Divide mixture among cooking shells or ramekins, or turn mixture into a 1- quart shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Place shells, ramekins (or baking dish) on cookie sheet for easy handling and place under preheated boiler. Broil until cheese is golden brown. Yield: 6 servings.
