The Olive Garden Baked Parmesan Shrimp is a delicious new recipe which has a creamy Parmesan sauce with shrimp, breadcrumbs, and fresh chopped tomatoes. This is an elegant main dish because you can serve up individual servings.
Don’t you just love a dish that looks much fancier than it is to prepare? I do. This dish is served with shrimp, but if you don’t like shrimp, you could easily use chicken, sausage, or perhaps even some crab meat. I love how this dish is served up in individual casserole dishes so it makes a lovely presentation. You could use any pasta that you have on hand, so it may be a good way to use up small bits of pasta that you may have. Best of all you can prepare this in about 30 minutes. Did I mention it was easy.
The Parmesan sauce is so easy to make, you will quickly put this sauce together. The breadcrumbs are not pictured in the video, but you can add those in. They do add a nice crunch to this pasta dish.
