"So easy yet sooo delicious! I used precooked shrimp."
"This was very good. The only change I made was I used a Asiago, Fontina, Parmesan, Provolone mix in place of the Parmesan. My husband liked it. Will make again."
"So very very good! Frozen peas are great in place of the spinach. Cooked shrimp instead of raw worked as well."
"Wow! Ok, I doubled the recipe. I also added a couple of seasonings - old bay & paprika just on top. I should also say that the garlic cloves were huge so this was very garlicky - delicious if you love garlic. I would have done a full pound of shrimp for 6 servings though. Next time."
"Delicious! The trick is to add different cheeses. I used shredded asiago, provolone, romano, mozzarella, fontina and parmesan. Yum!"
