Shrimp, Artichoke, Havarti Casserole (One of my Favorite Recipes)

Shrimp, artichoke, Havarti casserole.

Several years ago my friend Virginia served this wonderful casserole for lunch, and it's been on my list of favorites ever since.  Everyone in my family, even the children, loves this, and it is easy to prepare.  My friends like it too.

                                           SHRIMP, ARTICHOKE, HAVARTI CASSEROLE
(Recipe from Virginia Tucker, easy and quick and delicious)

2 cans quartered artichokes, drained
1 to 1.5 lbs. Shrimp
Havarti cheese
3 to 4 tablespoons olive oil
2 to 4 garlic cloves

In saucepan heat olive oil over medium heat and simmer garlic cloves until brown to infuse oil with garlic flavor.  Remove garlic cloves.  Quickly sauté artichokes and place in bottom of casserole dish (along with any remaining oil).  Top artichokes with raw shrimp.  Place slices of Havarti cheese on top of shrimp. (You can sprinkle some Parmesan on top of all of this—optional).  Bake at 350 degrees long enough to melt the cheese well and brown it a bit here and there.
Serves 4

Serve with French bread.  Makes a nice light meal and leaves room for dessert!!!
