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.
Kids took half the macaroni and cheese shells before it was added. Picky eaters. But I loved the whole recipe. Great addition to just plain old macaroni and cheese.
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.
