    We enjoyed this as a very elevated version of mac'n'cheese. I stuffed large shells and also used mozz instead of pepper jack; half and half instead of milk. I added a little hot sauce to the cheese mix, as well as powdered mustard because it always improves flavor. Didn't have Andouille- substituted Kielbasa. I filled 16 shells and it had plenty of sauce for bread. Will probably make again!

    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.
