Cajun Shrimp Casserole
This longer ingredient list is worth the effort for a special occasion meal. If you're not a fan of okra, you can leave it out of this dish."This was fantastic! Used mozzarella cheese instead of parmesan. Next time I will add diced tomatoes and my husband thinks it would be better without okra, but I love okra, so we agree to disagree :-)" - 898Courtney
