"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!"

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.

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.
