An excellent seafood dish! It reminds me a bit of tuna fish casserole, but with shrimp and a few other enticing flavors. Will definitely be adding to my recipe list...

Try this dish with Al Dente Lemon Chive Fettuccine. It is amazing and cooks in just 3 minutes. If you can't find it in your local store, check out

Amazing photo! This recipe would be great with several different varieties of fresh mushrooms. I think I will try it with a mixture of oysters and shiitakes. I find that oysters have a nice velvety texture that compliments creamy sauces very well, and the shiitake will boost up the mushroom flavour. Thanks for the inspiration!
