Bergy, this was very very rich, every one loved it but could only eat a spoonful, it was so rich. The next time I make it I would just use whole milk instead of the evapourated skim. It was an excellant dish for a Seafood feast buffet. Thank-you for a new dish added to our annual event. Dorothy

Wonderful! I made this for my family at Christmas, instead of tradtional fare. I followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of instead of onion powder I used garlic salt. Everyone raved about this recipe. Delicious. Can't wait to make it again!

This is a wonderful casserole. I used large sea scallops and cut them in half and medium sized shrimp. I also used half & half instead of evaporated milk. Since we are pasta lovers, I served it over broad noodles. There is a little left over, but not for long, I hid it away for my lunch.
