Cheesy Shrimp and Rice Casserole




This dish is flat-out delicious!







Did you know ~

·      Shrimp ranks number one in volume among seafood’s consumed in the United States.

·      According to the National Fisheries Institute, each American eats 4.1 pounds of shrimp apiece per year. 

·      The word casserole comes from a French term meaning, “served from the dish used for cooking.”  

Which brings me to this flavorful shrimp casserole.  The simple ingredients in this recipe make this dish an easy dinner on a busy night.  While it’s in the oven, there’s plenty of time to make the salad, and maybe some garlic bread.

The snowy whiteness of the rice, the golden colored cheese and the pinkish shrimp, turns into a colorful appetizing dish.

And ~ it’s even great the next day!
