    Great!! Used butter and milk instead of heavy cream added additional Cajun seasoning and a dash of cayenne. Also added andouille sausage will make again

    This was awesome! I used only 1 Tbsp of Cajun seasoning and a generous shake of crushed red pepper. I used almond coconut milk instead of heavy cream and thickened it a little with cornstarch and water. My husband and I loved this and I will definitely make it again. I agree with another review that this would be very good with chicken.

    Turned out very good. We didn't add any extra water to the sauce and it became pretty thick, which is just how i like it

    It was not bad and quick to make once everything was prepped. But it was definitely missing some spice. I used much more cajun seasoning than the recipe, coated the shrimp (also used minced garlic) and added more to the cream sauce. Didn't have the kick I was hoping for. Will make again but will need to add additional ingredient for yhe extra kick.

    Delish and super easy! Used fettuccine instead of penne, subbed greek yogurt for cream, and added a bag of frozen mixed veggies. 👌

    The dish was good, but it could've been better. I used the measurements of the recipe and the food came out bland. Either my taste buds are too weak or my cooking is bad, but the food needed more seasonings. It was good overall. I would make this dish again, but adjust the amount of seasonings I put in it as I go along.

    great recipe. i split the cajun seasoning between one tablespoon mixed with the shrimp w/ old bay and the other tablespoon with the heavy whipping cream. i also added fresh garlic to it. turned out amazing

    I cut the cajun seasoning to 1 1/2 tbspns. It was still plenty spicy. I also used a parm/romano/asiago blend instead of just parm. Delicious! Definitely will make again.

    Would definitely make again I didn’t think it was spicy enough. Instead of doing the shrimp in batches I was eager and dumped it all in lmao so it didn’t get that golden brown look but overall it was delicious

    Great meal. I didn't have heavy cream, so I used 1/2 half & half & 1/2 a ricotta cheese & milk mixture, and it was great. Very spicy; hubby & I loved it, kids thought it was too spicy.
