    This dish was AMAZING! For me it’s not a every week dish maybe twice a month for my family, but definitely was good! I didn’t use shrimp because I’m allergic or regular sausage because my husband is vegan so we found alternatives

    This was great. It is a little vague on where and when to add the spice seasoning but with that said it’s not to hard to figure out. Thanks again. The family lived it.

    It was great! I made it work w/bow tie pasta. Won’t cook it every week but will be making it every time I’m in the mood for some Cajun pasta. Didn’t have any sausage on hand so just used the extra shrimp.

    This was amazing! It’s similar to what they call “pastalaya” in Louisiana. Great spice and flavor. Will definitely be making this again

    This was incredible. There’s no need to buy Cajun seasoning though; you can google the ingredients and you probably already have them in your house. Salute to the originator of the recipe.
