      this is so wonderful! i usually cook my shrimp and scallops with anissette, for that anise flavor. this time i used sambucca instead of ouzo. i used alot of fresh basil because i was out of parsley, 6 plum tomatoes, and otherwise followed the recipe, i loved the cheeses which just thickened the sauce, taste was sublime-

      Awesome is all I can say! DH and I both raved about this, it's so good. I realized too late that I was out of ouzo, so I used some white wine and anis seeds. It still was incredible.<br/>Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for A Diabetic Summer Trip / Diabetes Forum

      This was great! I may cut down on the amount of cheese - it turned out VERY cheesy - but no complaints! My family loved it and I will make it again! Thanks!
