Reviews for Angel Hair Shrimp Bake
"This is a award winning recipe from before 2001. From Mr. William Sarnecky, Chester VAHe was the first place winner in the Dairylicious Pasta Dishes Contest sponsored by the Southeast United Dairy Assn, Atlanta GA. I have the book. I have made it over many times. Sorry Susan Davidson- Elm Grove, WI- not yours!A great variation is to add some Cooked italian sausage in place of the shrimp.This recipe is great hot or room temp. Perfect for pot luck! Thank you Mr. Sarnecky!"
"loved it I did not use the yogurt I did the mayo and ranch dressing"
"I've made this recipie several times. However, on a recent trip to the beach, and no grocery store around, I found myself having to make some substitutions, and we are glad we did! Instead of using the half-and-half and yogurt, I used mayonnaise and ranch dressing. I think this has been the best shrimp bake we have made!"
"This dish was great! However, the shrimp did take longer to cook."
"one of my absolute favorite things to make. So delicious!"
"This angel hair shrimp bake is a MUST to make! Every year on my friend's birthday she requests I make this dish for her as it is one of her favorites!"
"My daughter is very picky on what she eats . She like the rest wants seconds."
"My family loved it! I made a few changes. I couldn't find the pre-made pasta, had to use my own. I had 1/2 cooked shrimp and 1/2 uncooked. I bought fresh parsley but must have accidentally gotten cilantro out of habit, gave it a nice surprise! It does make a lot, offered some to the neighbor. I would make it again."
"This recipe sounded delicious and easy. I just made it and have to say it is not very good. I used half the salsa and herbs and that's all I can taste. I can't even taste the shrimp or cheeses. What a waste of great ingredients."
"Do you think the calories and carbs are calculated correctly for this dish? It looks great, but usually angel hair pasta comes with too many carbs and raises my blood sugar."
"This is one of my husband's favorite recipes. It's very easy to make and the salsa gives it a very good flavor."
"I have made this recipe with either shrimp or chicken(2 cups, cooked, chopped). The one thing I change is I make a fresh batch of salsa and throw that in, instead of the processed store bought stuff. It gives a freshness to the recipe and everyone LOVES it. This is a keeper. (Salsa is just tomatoes fresh or diced canned, green onion, garlic, lemon juice, cilantro, salt/pepper)."
"For some reason the shrimp took an extra 20 mins above the 30 mins previous. Don't know if anyone else had this problem. But tasty"
"Excellent recipe, I cooked it slightly longer (maybe 40 minutes) and it was not at all watery."
"Was missing something...."
"I read you can substitute butter and milk for half and half... but what about sour cream instead of plain yogurt or instead of half and half? Could that be a substitute for either of those ingredients?"
"Makes too much for our family, not sure if leftovers can be frozen. sc"
"My husbands new favorite. He loves it! Does get kinda watery from the salsa after heating...but still sooo good."
"This is a wonderful recipe! However, next time I make it I will use less salsa, it gets to watery when heated."
