    I had a similar recipe but I like this one better. I used 1/2 c of Ranch (that’s all I had) & 1/2 c milk Then I used a cup of cottage cheese instead of yogurt. I always do this for lasagna. This all worked perfect. I also used up several kinds of cheese & added garlic powder. It’s was delicious!!!

    I used the mayo and ranch dressing previously recommended and that was wonderful, but I think next time I won't bother with the salsa.

    This is a award winning recipe from before 2001. From Mr. William Sarnecky, Chester VAHe was the first place winner in the Dairylicious Pasta Dishes Contest sponsored by the Southeast United Dairy Assn, Atlanta GA. I have the book. I have made it over many times. Sorry Susan Davidson- Elm Grove, WI- not yours!A great variation is to add some Cooked italian sausage in place of the shrimp.This recipe is great hot or room temp. Perfect for pot luck! Thank you Mr. Sarnecky!

    I've made this recipie several times. However, on a recent trip to the beach, and no grocery store around, I found myself having to make some substitutions, and we are glad we did! Instead of using the half-and-half and yogurt, I used mayonnaise and ranch dressing. I think this has been the best shrimp bake we have made!

    This dish was great! However, the shrimp did take longer to cook.
