    One of my wife’s favorites when we go out so pulled this recipe out of moth balls and will work on it so we can do it at home now that I’m retired.

    • 2024-1-22 – Made this with thin spaghetti. Need to remember how long it takes to get pasta water boiling because it wasn’t ready until about 5 minutes after shrimp was done on cooktop. The taste was good but I’d have liked the cheese & bread crumb mixture to coat the shrimp better. There were many “bread crumb – cheese balls” and while tasty, I’d like it to adhere to the shrimp more.
