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 Edison, New Jersey

"After reading other reviews, I added extra garlic, butter and chicken broth. Then I added the cooked pasta to the pan before putting it all in the oven. My husband couldn't say enough how much he enjoyed this meal."

"Excellent. Peeling and deveining the shrimp weren't my favorite part but we picked up fresh shrimp at the docks while the boats came in when we were on vacation at the beach. It doesn't get much better than that."

"This wasn't nearly as good as I'd hoped. Somehow seafood and cheese just never turns out good."
