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.

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!

EXCELLENT! Family LOVED! But dangerous.... Hard to stop eating it!!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 6, 2008

the green chilies made it a little too spicy for my families taste. The vermicelli seemed to stick together. Thin spaghetti might have been better. We only needed to serve 4 and weren't sure if it could be frozen for later.
