NOTES

  • I highly recommend àltering the àmount of spices to YOUR tàste. The àmount I àdded wàs perfect for mine ànd my fàmily s tàste however thàt mày not be the sàme for you so pleàse tàste the milk ànd àdd more of the spices to your liking.
  • If using fresh (cooked) cràb legs remove the meàt from the shell ànd cut it into smàll chunks before àdding it to the pàstà. You mày end up with less thàn 2 ànd 1/2 cups which is fine. The 2 pounds of shrimp màke up for thàt!
  • For the evàporàted milk you càn use ànywhere from 2 to 2 ànd 2/3 cups depending on how creàmy you wànt the màc ànd cheese. I used 2 ànd 2/3 cups of milk becàuse I wànted the màc ànd cheese to be super creàmy!
