4 servings


  • 1 cup rotini pasta

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can (1/2 stick) unsalted butter

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • ½ cup imitation crabmeat, diced

  • ½ cup milk

  • ¼ teaspoon seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®)

  • teaspoon Cajun seasoning

  • teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ cup dry bread crumbs

  • 2 tablespoons salted butter, melted


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 1 1/2-quart casserole dish.

  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook rotini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.

  3. Add condensed soup, Cheddar cheese, imitation crab, milk, seafood seasoning, Cajun seasoning, and pepper to rotini; mix ingredients together. Transfer to the prepared casserole dish.

  4. Mix bread crumbs and melted butter in a small bowl until crumbs are moist; spread evenly over the casserole mixture.

  5. Cook in the preheated oven until bubbly and topping is golden brown, about 30 minutes.
