Reviews for Cajun Shrimp Lasagna Roll-Ups
"Love the taste. Instead of making roll ups I mixed everything together and make regular lasagna. What a hit with my family!"
"My husband made this with whole wheat lasagna noodles. We only used 1 pound of shrimp and had to sub Italian sausage (no Andouille here). Our Cajun seasoning from Louisiana is tasty but not hot. It made 8 rollups and we had extra cheese sauce. Excellent dinner and our guests loved it!!"
"Very good. I used velveeta cheese and omited the sausage. I used a few extra noodles and they rolled up fine."
"This was the worst recipe I have ever made. What a waste of a pound of shrimp."
"I will make it again although I think serving it over spaghetti noodles might be easier!"
"Excellent! My teen-age boys said I must definitely make this again! The flavor reminded us of our favorite dish at Buzzard Billie's, a cajun restaurant in our area that closed."
"This time I will serve it over pasta had a hard time with the lasagna noodles. The flavor is great and I cant wait to try it again"
"This recipe was amazing! I halved it and I didn't include the tomotoes because my boyfriend isn't a huge fan but after eating it he said it definitely would have been good with them. The recipe isn't too hot but has enough kick to give it it's cajun name."
