this was dinner last night

This crab, pasta and cheese gratin from Williams Sonoma (recipe here) is like macaroni and cheese for grown-ups. (Though my kids both liked it, too.) It was moderately time-consuming to put together, but so worth it. I'm planning to make it the next time I host a dinner party since the whole thing can be assembled the night before and then popped into the oven before the guests arrive.
It also makes for great leftovers the next day.


  1. Absolutely delish! I have been trying to get back into the cooking groove and picked up a lot of new yummy things to make this week as well. I think this mac may have to make an appearance!

  2. I have made that before. It is so good.

  3. That is quite simply gorgeous. It would never have occurred to me to put crab in a macaroni and cheese casserole!

  4. Sounds divine. And what a pretty photo!

  5. What time is dinner.
    Looks lovely!
