Kitten here is another outstanding recipe...for all who loves shrimp this easy and scrumptious casserole will surely be a hit! Goes awesome with crusty garlic bread. All the herbs blend nicely and produces a wonderful result! Thanks for posting another winner.
Yum!! I absolutely loved this casserole. I made a couple of minor substitutions to bring down the fat content (egg substitute for eggs, less mozzarella on top) and I used medium salsa instead of mild. It was still great. When I took the casserole out of the oven, I said "No way is this only six servings"...I cut it into eight pieces, but then ate two. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Kitten!
I'm quite familiar with this recipe, as I live in the city whose Junior League cookbook it's in! For a while there it was a dinner-party staple around our city, and always a big hit. Only problem is the Swiss and mozzarella---too stringy when melted! When I made this, I "upped" the feta, omitted the Swiss, and topped with freshly-shredded Parmesan instead of mozz. And the last time I made it, I had no salsa on hand, so threw in a can of spicy Ro-Tel tomatoes and chiles. Worked great! And final note: there is no such thing as too much fresh basil in a recipe like this!
