    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    Don’t let the number of ingredients fool you; this is pretty simple to make. The majority of the ingredients are just for the 1/3 cup Italian dressing that is mixed with the flour for the crust. Save the yummy sauce the shrimp is cooked in to sop up with crusty bread. This is a one-dish meal that really needs no accompaniment. You can serve it with plain yogurt or sour cream for some extra creaminess.

      This is actually a baby version of a great recipe. I cut the recipe in half and baked it in my 6-inch springform pan. I left off the yogurt and served it like is with a side salad. The recipe is laid out well and is easy to follow, step by step by step.

      I don't know how easy it was to make, as someone else made it and brought it to my house for lunch. It was however, very attractive! It was also very tasty. I loved the shrimp on it, and the red pepper flakes gave it just the right amount of spice!
