Creamed Shrimp on Rice or Pasta

Pat Duran


This recipe is a remake of a recipe I found on the internet.
It has been changed from the original version- this is the way my family likes it- I hope your family likes it too!!
It's easy and the sour cream, chives and lemon juice tingles on your taste buds!
Shredded cheese or French fried onions over top is an added dimension of flavor!!
