You Need:

Casserole
4
oz. (1 cup) uncooked small shell pasta
2
tablespoons sliced green onions
3
garlic cloves, minced
1
tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
2
tablespoons all-purpose or unbleached flour
1/2
cup chicken broth
1/2
cup half-and-half
2
tablespoons white wine
1
(12-oz.) pkg. frozen shelled deveined cooked small shrimp, thawed
1/4

1/4
cup grated Parmesan cheese
Topping
1/4
cup Progresso® Parmesan Bread Crumbs
1
tablespoon margarine or butter, melted

To Make:

  • 1Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 1 1/2-quart casserole with nonstick cooking spray. Cook pasta to desired doneness as directed on package. Drain.
  • 2Meanwhile, in large saucepan, cook onions and garlic in oil over medium heat for 30 to 60 seconds or until garlic begins to turn golden. Stir in flour; cook until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Gradually add broth and half-and-half, stirring constantly, until mixture boils and thickens. Remove from heat.
  • 3Stir in wine, cooked pasta and all remaining casserole ingredients. Spoon into sprayed casserole.
  • 4In small bowl, combine topping ingredients; mix well. Sprinkle over top.
  • 5Bake at 350°F. for 25 to 30 minutes or until casserole is bubbly and thoroughly heated.

Tips:

To thaw shrimp, place in a colander or strainer and rinse with cool water until it is thawed. Drain well.

Chopped garlic in the jar is a convenient alternative to fresh garlic. It's easy to use and keeps in the refrigerator for up to six months.

Prepare the casserole without the topping. Cover tightly and refrigerate until ready to bake. Uncover casserole and sprinkle with topping. Bake as directed in recipe.

Serve this elegant casserole with a Caesar salad and Italian rolls with butter and preserves.
