Sylvia's Shrimp Supper

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"This is a simple, quick supper that is ready for serving in less than half an hour. Feel free to substitute crab for shrimp and add any vegetables you have on hand, the result is just as tasty! Serve over hot linguini, garnish with a sprinkling of fresh parsley."

Return the milk and flour mixture to the saucepan. Stir in the parsley, oregano, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook until mixture thickens. Stir in the shrimp and heat through.
