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

"I read all of the reviews and tripled the liquid amounts and then added 3-4 tablespoons of 1/2 and 1/2 with some Wondra quick-mixing flour. You could use regular flour or corn starch. Next time I'm quadrupling the liquid amount. Also used a small amount of pepper flakes like you get with pizza. Terrific flavour!"

"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."
