“This recipe came about partially as a result of me attempting to recreate a dish that I once had at a Red Lobster Restaurant. That was a baked dish with a thick layer of molten (I kid you not!) layer of cheese on the top and spiced shrimp in a marinara sauce below. While this dish in no where near that it is still very good and as a real bonus is quick and easy to make. It is also a recipe that is easy to adjust for different tastes. I would love to hear of any variations that you may come up with on it. This dish is good served over either rice or pasta.”
