Surprisingly easy to make and very tasty. I used Romano instead of Parmesan Cheese as that is what I had on hand and it was simply delicious:) This recipe is a definite keeper.
My family also enjoyed this dish. I felt an entire pound of cheddar cheese with only a pound of shrimp would be too overpowering so I cut the cheese amount in half, which still gave me a rich, cheesy sauce.
My 14 year old son and I made this for supper. It was delicious! If you have smaller children that will be eating, cut the Creole seasoning down. The kick of it was great for adults, but my 7 year old said it was a little spicy for her. We only used 1/2 of the sharp cheddar cheese. It was still plenty of cheese.
