Reviews for Creole Pasta with Sausage and Shrimp
"We don't do much pasta but since we can't resist creole flavors I had to give this a try. It is excellent!"
"This recipe was amazing and simple to make I added cooked chicken breast to add to the creole theme everyone love it has been requested several times this month"
"I do not eat shellfish but made this recipe for my boyfriend. He absolutely loved it. I finely diced the tomatoes and tossed them in right before serving since the recipe did not state exactly how to add them. The dish (I was told) was spicy, creamy, and delish!"
"Tasty but recipe asks for 2 cups of tomatos but does not explain what to do with them"
