Reviews for Cajun Macaroni
"I really like this, the only change I made is, I made it with hot Italian sausage. It's great"
"Easy and has a good flavor to it."
"I can't wait to try this one. It sounds so easy. Has anyone tried making it with Italian Sausage?"
"Have made this quite a few times. Everyone eats plenty (I double the recipe). This time I forgot to check my cajun seasoning and I didn't have any. I substituted Jamaican jerk seasoning and it was just as good."
"This was delish and easy to make! Definitely would make this again. I used a mac and cheese that had a cheese sauce rather than the cheese powder. And next time I think I'll add more cajun. I also added black beans. Great comfort food dish!"
"Wasn't awful, just not that good."
"I just dont know about this one."
"Wonderful recipe for a beginning cook. LOL!"
