About the pasta!

I found these incredible pasta pouches by Barilla that are pre-cooked! All you have to do is place the pasta in the microwave for 60 seconds and it is READY! I know… this is awesome! Listen anything that saves me time makes so happy. It frees me up to do other things.

A pasta, crab and mushroom tasty mix to fulfil every craving.

How To Prep?

  • First, you want to remove the mushroom caps and slightly remove the insides of the mushroom for space
  • Wash the portabella mushrooms and pat dry
  • Using one bowl you will mix all of the ingredients that will be placed inside each mushroom
  • BAKE! That’s it!


Let me add what a great addition these will be to your family dinners, pot lucks, parties, and just because!

Low Carb Option: You can omit the pasta and the breadcrumbs if you are watching your carbs and I promise you they will turn out to be JUST as good!
