    Great...just enough for 2. Added a few more shrimp, 1 TBSP no salt added tomato paste, mixed some Italian seasoning with LIGHT cream cheese. I like it a little creamier so I used about a 1/3 of the pkg. Would make this dish again for sure. Great with a tossed salad.

    Delicious & easy recipe. I used the Kraft Sundried Tomato dressing instead of the Balsamic Dressing & it was yummy!
