      MMMM Good. I didn't have a shrimp stock, so I used a clam stock instead. Worked out perfectly. Will make again.

      I'm so excited to try this as it seems Olive Garden has dropped this from their menu. We were very sad to learn this on our last trip :(

      delicious, made a seafood version, and a nonseafood version using chicken stock. Will make again. It's like having fresh restaurant leftovers at home! Love to eat it despite the 650 calories per tiny serving.
