Shrimp Bake

Your family will love this delicious Shrimp Bake.
Serve with a small tossed salad and
slices of warm buttered French bread,
for a hearty and comforting meal.

This dish is simply, yet elegant enough to serve guests.

This recipe calls for 2 cups cooked rice.
I have made this recipe using extra long grain rice,
wild rice and a wild rice/white rice medley.
All have been super great in this recipe,
so feel free to use your favorite rice, rice blend or
any left-over rice you might have in your refrigerator.
