Poor Man's Shrimp

Poor Man's Shrimp

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!"

No spices? Not one? Not even pepper or celery salt or something? A bit bland without. I used some mayo and some miracle whip because I was confused. This turned out well, was liked, was eaten. S...

When I first made this, it was definitely a miss. The second time around, I tweaked it quite a bit. This is how I made it (the four stars are based on my version): I replaced the tuna with imit...
