Very easy week night dinner. I tried a variation the second time....using vegetable broth and using salmon instead of shrimp. Was very tasty both ways.

If you love Risotto, you will love this casserole! My family loved this dish tonight¿¿ So easy to make. Prep everything before melting the butter.
