Garlicky Shrimp Alfredo Bake

I was on Facebook and seen this recipe and fell in love. The first time I made this recipe. I had several plates. It was sooooo good. The Mister asked if I could make it again that week. I was like, ummm no! He also asked if I could make it again while we had guests over as a side dish. I had to explain to him that their would be none left if I made it for our guest. It's that good! I'm not sharing :) I love how super easy this recipe is to make. Cleanup is a breeze, and it doesn't take too long to make.

    This looks a lot simpler than I thought it might. How crazy is it that those circulating facebook recipes are so good? We had the comforting chicken and noodles (crockpot) and my husband recommended an immediate repeat of the dish, LOL.
