Sunday Shrimp Pasta Bake Recipe

Pasta is popular in our home, so my favorite meal would almost have to have it in the main course. In this delicious casserole, pasta complements the shrimp our local fishermen bring in.

Like Kristine, I've been making this for my family since it first appeared in 2006. Even though most of our 6 kids are grown & living away from home now, this is still popular whenever they come home. The only change I make is to eliminate the green pepper because my hubby gets sick from it. Otherwise, I make it exactly as written & it's always terrific. Leftovers are great, too!

Just made this dish again last week and have made it often since February 2006, when it first appeared in TOH magazine. My family loves this, and it's a great company dish [I use white American cheese instead of the Velveeta, because of a severe allergy to Annatto, the food dye used in Velveeta].

Have made this several times, so good! I also made it for work with chicken instead of shrimp due to a coworkers allergies and that was also good. A keeper!
