Recipe by WALLEN
"Shell macaroni are stuffed with a creamy tuna mixture in this easy to prepare, fun to eat appetizer. Serve on a bed of lettuce leaves with toothpicks, and make sure plenty of cocktail sauce is available! Be prepared with additional 'shrimp' ready to fill the serving dish as your guests make this great appetizer disappear quickly. I keep extras in the fridge. Enjoy!"

I made this recipe for my sisters baby shower. The theme was "Think Pink" and most of the food was pink. Not only did this dish look great on the food table, the guests enjoyed it. I would definately use the recipe again.
It was a good recipe, but it was pointed out to me by a few people at my gathering that it did not taste like shrimp. The shells were hard to stuff too. I would make this recipe again, though. Good.
Wouldn't call it shrimp, but wonderfully healthy finger food !
I love this recipe...i drop the shrimp and just make the tuna salad and the bigger shells and take this for a quick, easy to tranport/eat on the go lunch
I liked this, but I tweaked the recipe a ton because I thought it was bland. May be my fault; my first change was Greek yogurt in place of Miracle Whip. That probably made the filling less flavorful. I added hot sauce, a little bit of rum, bit of vinegar for the classic MW zest, and a few different spices. Then I liked it better! I will make these again, and may follow the recipe.
This recipe is good but need's some other ingredents to get the flavor of being anything close to poor mans shrimp.will work with it more to see what I can make it better. as of now it's just tuna salad in a shell.
