Shrimp Scampi Casserole

"This is by request...Not for anyone on a low fat diet! It's also great as an appetizer for a party, just use small plates and forks to serve it. I don't remember where I got it but I think it might have been on a butter box. (Land-O-Lakes???) My family requests it at every family occasion. I have to tell you that I don't measure everthing in this recipe anymore. Just by eye now and I love garlic so you might go easy on it if your not a huge fan! (FYI, I have butter on the stovetop, a bowl with breadcrumb mix next to it, and casserole dish next to it. Sort of like an assembly line!) Recipe can be halved or quartered!"
