I was cleaning out my pantry last week and found a can of condensed cheddar cheese soup. Upon further "investigation" I also found a can of condensed cream of shrimp soup! So, I decided to try to create our dinnertime meal using these soups, frozen shrimp and other ingredients on hand. Sort of an "at-home" Chopped! The result was this rich and satisfying shrimp dish that my family loved!
1Cook shrimp as usual, using Old Bay seasoning to taste. Drain, cool, peel and devein, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Set aside.
2Meanwhile, heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 2 quart casserole with cooking spray. Set aside.
3In a 2 quart saucepan, over medium to high heat, heat the butter until melted. Add the celery and shallots, Saute for 3-4 minutes. Add the cheese soup, cream of shrimp soup, wine and the cooking liquid from the shrimp. Mix well and cook, stirring often, for 3-4 minutes.
4Add 2 slices of the Provolone (torn into pieces) and 1/2 cup of the cheddar cheese. Cook, stirring constantly, until cheese melts.
5Add the shrimp, mix well and transfer to prepared casserole.
6Top with remaining cheeses. First, lay slices of Provolone on top and then sprinkle evenly with shredded cheddar cheese.
7Bake for 25-30 minutes until cheese is melted, hot and bubbly. Remove from oven and garnish with dried parsley flakes.
