So rich and delicious! I even used half-and-half for the whipping cream and still had a nice, rich casserole. I realized that I was out of mushrooms, so I sauteed some chopped onion and used that instead. This ia a wonderful combination and I look forward to making this again with the mushrooms And I'll use the onions again, too). Thanx for sharing this.
This was an interesting recipe! Its a very rich recipe with the sauce. I think next time I may omit the sherry but other then that I liked this. My daughter and I love artichokes and mushrooms and the addition of shrimp is quite good. Thanks for posting Karen
