Reviews forSunday Shrimp Pasta Bake
"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]."
"Awesome receipe...it is one of our favorites."
"Have made several times, always a hit!"
"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!!!"
"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."
