      I have eaten Shrimp Creole at a few places in New Orleans including a great place righ off Burbon street near the Acme Oyster place. This is NOT Shrimp Creole. That being said, it is interesting over rice but I discovered that it makes an AWESOME spaghetti sauce. The next day after making it we made spaghetti and didnt have any sauce. Feeling adventurous (and not wanting to waste the shrimp) I mixed the sauce with the spaghetti and everyone loved it. So, Shrimp Creole it is not but a decent spaghetti sauce it is.

      I bought a whole mess of canned shrimp on sale, wondering what I was going to do with it! This works with canned shrimp, as well as fresh! I'm a shrimpoholic and always looking for new ways to use it. This recipe was delightful, it freezes well and is actually even better tasting after it sits in the fridge for a couple of days!
