    RepoGuysWife's Note:

    I had this at my monthly Bunco group. One of the lady's husbands made it and gave us the recipe. It is to die for. I add in diced green pepper, saute it with the shrimp and more seasoning than called for when I make it.

      Oh fabulous!!!! I made the shrimp quite spicy and turns out thats a good thing, because they are toned down by the mac 'n 'cheese and its creamy delicious sauce, so dont hold back on the spice. This is not just wonderful comfort food but a very decadent twist on an everyday meal, we loved this and it'll definitely be made time and again! Thank you, RGW, delicious, made for PAC Fall 2012
