    A delicious dish, but needs to be more sauce. This will definitely be repeat dish in our house.

    Loved it! Family loved it. Used a creole seasoning instead of Cajun

    Turned out great, my 11 year old had 2 servings. The only thing I would say is be careful with the Cajun season I just this recipe but with less salt and parmesan only because it’s not my favorite but the recipe turned out great.

    Okay, so everyone was right about the saltiness. It is probably best to follow her seasoning recipe or read through the comments to see what everyone else might of done to fix this. overall the dish is great and i will definitely make again. 😊

    Salty! I used 2 Tbsp of Cajun seasoning and it was too salty. I needed to make my own

    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.

    Tried it twice, decent but it’s not Spicey enough
    It turned out very good! I used a shrimp Cajun mix from Kroger and it was perfect!

    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!
