Colleen Gonring of Brookfield, Wisconsin offers a new version of "surf and turf"—succulent steaks you stuff with shrimp! Don't be fooled...this hearty main-course pleaser only looks trick. "It's actually a cinch to prepare," assures Colleen.
For a special occasion or when company's coming, this delicious seafood dish makes a lasting impression. You'll be surprised at how fast you can prepare it. A mild, fresh-tasting sauce and the Monterey Jack cheese nicely complement the shrimp, I serve it over pasta or rice. —Jane Birch

Flavorful marinara sauce simmers for just a few hours. Right before mealtime, toss in the shrimp to cook quickly. Serve over steamy spaghetti for a delicious weeknight dish that feels dressed up. —Sue Mackey, Jackson, Wisconsin
My husband and I entertain most weekends, and to me the easiest way of serving a crowd is a buffet. This dish - a change of pace from turkey during the holidays - can be put together the night before, then baked the following day.

AFTER creating this recipe, I later pared it down to serve two. I serve this entree often, since it's so easy to assemble.
Along with a green salad, dessert and coffee, this casserole makes a quick, delicious lunch or dinner.

In Canandaigua, New York, Geneva Schmidtka blends together a rich, cheesy sauce that showcases canned crab meat. The creamy mixture can be served with toast points for a special lunch or over chicken, rice or potatoes for a distinctive dinner.
I've lived in Maryland for more than 50 years, so I know firsthand how much folks around here love crab cakes. I experimented with a number recipes and came up with this one. My family really likes it.
