    Felix4067's Note:

    For me, this is the ultimate in comfort food. Rich and creamy, cheesy, and seafood all in one dish...how do you lose? I've been known to add a LOT more cheese if I'm in the mood, or toss in some Cajun seasoning to spice it up a bit. Prep time includes stove-top cooking time, cooking time is just the baking time.

      Oh my goodness, this is very rich but really quite good. I added a bit of garlic powder and chives. Served with a side of Company's Coming Baked Rice. I will make this again, as my husband really enjoyed it. Thx Felix!

      Great recicpe! To add even more flavor, I added pinches of garlic salt and mustard powder. Also, presented it over white rice for a more complete dish.

      I made this for Valentine's Day dinner. My DH hummed all the way through his meal. I made it just as it is written and was pleased at the simplicity. When I make this again...I will add a little garlic. That is just my preference. Because we live in high altitude...I had to adjust the baking time. Again...this is very much a keeper. Thank you for posting!
