Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    Incredddible. So rich and comforting. A proper treat.

    It was rich and creamy, but the crab got lost in the sauce somehow. I steamed cauliflower and added this to the pasta when combining with the sauce (so I could pretend that it contained veggies lol), and this worked well. I will try another brand/type of crab (used fresh local as in Cornwall), and see if it improves. However, lovely, easy and comforting recipe.

    I doubled the sauce ingredients and then mixed half the bechamel with the crab and layered it with lasagne sheets before topping with the rest of the bechamel and baking. Made a huge meal for 2 or sensible portions for 3. Delicious.
