Creamy Pesto Shrimp
Great base, did a few extra things. I cooked mushrooms, 1 shallot, and 1 clove of garlic w/ olive oil. set that aside. I skipped the butter, just warmed heavy whipping cream for about 5 minutes, and then added diced tomatoes from a can. Continued the warming and stirring for another 5 minutes. Added pre-cooked shrimp, pesto (classico in a jar) and the cooked veggies to the mix. Added red pepper flakes/salt and pepper. And I stirred that on medium for about about 10 minutes. It was a bit watery still, but to solve that problem, I scooped my sauce and mixed it in a pot with the cooked noodles to my desired consistency. Worked perfectly, and tasted amazing.

Spinach and Feta Pita Bake
FANTASTIC as written---but if you add oregano and onion--OUT of this world. My husband literally said "it was better than the moment we got married." I think he was in the mood for hyperbole that night, but still. Stop what you're doing and make it now.

American Chop Suey II
was good, could see how it's a family pleaser. However, very bland. I suggest chili powder and seasoned salt. lots of it.
