Very good. Made it with cottage cheese since it was all I had on hand. Can't wait to try with ricotta. Delicious.

I've made this several times and we've always enjoyed it. My daughter is getting serious with a boy who has shell fish allergies. Could a pound of chicken be substituted for the seafood?
