Shrimp in Creamy Garlic Sauce

Lauren Conforti


Quick & Easy! This uses the same sauce I made for my "Easy Cheesy Creamed Spinach & Garlic", but without the Parmesan. I served this with Asian-style vegetables and Roasted Red Potatoes.

Remove the tails & serve with crackers and this makes a very tasty appetizer!!
