2. Transfer the shrimp-soup mixture to large bowl. Stir in imitation crabmeat, sweet red pepper, slightly thawed peas, the remaining can of shrimp soup, the Old Bay seasoning, salt, black pepper and half-and-half. Transfer mixture to a lightly oiled 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish, spreading the mixture evenly. If serving next day, refrigerate, covered, overnight.
