The first recipe my husband said was "company worthy!" We both loved it! Don't let the little bit longer length intimidate you; its not that difficult. Instructions are very clear. I did use all scallops, as that is what I had on hand, but I'll be making this again as I think it would be a great way to use up small quantities of shrimp, scallops, crab or even lobster. Delicious, Derf! Thank you for an excellent recipe!
I just had one of the best dinners ever! This is an awesome recipe! I halved the recipe for just me and my husband, and used all shrimp because of what I had on hand. I used an aged New York white cheddar for the cheese. I wasn't quite sure about the sourdough chunks but went ahead and added them per the recipe and, I have to tell you, I think that made the whole dish! My husband and I were fishing out the bread and sopping up the sauce, it was so good! We had this over a little mostaccioli and also had a green salad. Thanks so much Dorothy, this is going into my 'best ever will do again and again' file!
I chose to make this dish for my stepsons birthday dinner. I could not imagine a simple recipe like this coming out so good. Everybody raved how good this dish was. Thanks Derf for making our meal so special and memorable. I will be making this recipe again. 10 stars!
