Surprisingly easy to make and very tasty. I used Romano instead of Parmesan Cheese as that is what I had on hand and it was simply delicious:) This recipe is a definite keeper.
My family also enjoyed this dish. I felt an entire pound of cheddar cheese with only a pound of shrimp would be too overpowering so I cut the cheese amount in half, which still gave me a rich, cheesy sauce.
I don't know if someone went in and changed the portions but let me explain something for future users. I think instead of 2 Tablespoons of both salt and pepper plus that other seasoning that I have never heard of before it should be 1 teaspoon because as of right now I am still dripping in sweat from the amount of salt and pepper it called for. My wife could not even stomach it and it is her favorite dish. Not only that but you do not say when to add the onion... not the green onion the other one at the top of the list, you might also want to specify what kind of onion to get as there are yellow, white, and red, each one having a unique flavor to add to the meal... any way I would suggest just passing this one up. There is not enough direction and the portions are way off... look for another one, save the money and the hassle since I spent about 50 buck on all the ingredients and had to watch it go right down the drain. Good luck on your search and the review is not meant to be an attack but a heads up that something is really wrong with it and you should be cautious. Thanks for reading and good luck on your search.
