wonderful...bursting with flavor. DH needed to have it "thinned" out more though. Kind of thick but otherwise...perfect. Had to add more. I just did this with chicken breasts tonight and it was even more wonderful.

I tried this recipe, it was delicious! My husband raved about it and he doesnt like shrimp too much. I served the shrimp over vermicelli noodles and it was spicy. If you dont want it too spicy, only do half of the can of peppers and keep the cream cheese and milk as is.

I thought this was absolutely wonderful. I added a bit of parmesean and green onion for presentation and served over white rice. Everyone loved it. Will definitely make again!!!

Excellent!! So simple, but delicious. I may throw some garlic into the equation next time. And there will most definitely be a next time.
