    This was great! This was the first time for my kids to eat seafood and they surprisingly enjoyed it. I had to add some chicken breasts into it as well for my kids but overall, we all enjoyed it!

    AMAZING. I'm gonna cook this once a week. Add basil on top when it's done, it really ties in the flavor. I eyed the salt, and it turned out fine. I didn't follow that part of the recipe. <3

    Missed the notes before cooking so did turn out a bit salty but otherwise a good, simple weeknight dinner.

    This turned out so good! Incredibly easy to make, and is very flavorful and filling. I added some sautéed onions and garlic to the sauce, along with a little bit of cayenne pepper, because we like things on the spicier side. My boyfriend, who normally isn’t a big fan of pasta dinners, had two servings and ate the rest for lunch the next day. Saving this one for future use!

    really need to cut down the Cajun seasoning... if you’re planning on used Old Bay Cajun seasoning, cut it in half. Super overwhelming taste.

    Definitely used too much Cajun seasoning. Or maybe I didn’t have enough shrimp. Either way this recipe was easy and delicious and I have my notes for next time!
