True Fall Comfort Food: Shrimp-Cajun Sausage Casserole

September 24, 2009


I love to prepare Sunday night dinners this time of year. It’s one of the few nights that my three kids and I aren’t racing from cross country, to dance, to football practice, and we can actually sit down and eat together.  Last week, I wanted something Cajun, yet comforting. I threw together this dish with some ingredients I had in my pantry and came out with this casserole. It’s perfect for fall and large dinners. Feel free to substitute chicken for the shrimp if you like.

This recipe looks yummy - can't wait to try it! Not sure if this was an oversight, but what kind of sausage do you use - didn't see it listed in the recipe? Thanks for giving me new ideas for my picky eaters!
