This recipe is very easy and good but I had to make a few changes to give it 4 stars. If I had not made the changes I don't think I could give it more than 3 stars. Prior to pouring it into the baking dish I checked for seasonings and it was very bland at that point and did not have enough "sauce". I added some minced garlic (around 1 tsp), Emeril's Creole Seasoning and extra cayenne pepper. I also added heavy whipping cream (probably between 1/4 and 1/2 cup) and lightly simmered for a few minutes in order for everything to blend together. I proceeded to bake as instructed and after tasting it DH and I were both very pleased with the final outcome.
We found the sauce on this shrimp to be very pasty. I think that the cream cheese and swiss combo needed a bit more liquid (more wine? more milk? cream, as the other reviewer used?). I added fresh garlic with the the green onions and used more cayenne pepper for seasoning. The flavor of the shrimp was wonderful, but we were disappointed in the sauce. A few alterations would make this a better recipe.
