Absolutely delicious but i made some changes ( I know, I know) left out cream cheese & sour cream (to cut fat) used cream of shrimp soup, added white wine, mushrooms, shallots , sealegs, and some brown rice. So, so good. Had problems finding a good seafood casserole, this fit my needs. Delicious, company worthy, super easy.
