This is one of the recipes I made often when my kids were growing up. It is the exact recipe, with tiny modifications. I don't peel the tomatoes and cut them in a fine wedge. Trader Joe's garlic croutons are great, as is their crab meat. We thought we had lost all of our copies of the family recipes, so it is good to find this on the internet. I LOVE the flavor of this!
