Mizzsoulsista's Soul-full Low-Carb Shrimp Casserole

I hope that you like this, because it was really yummy to my roommate and I. It looks like it has a lot of ingredients, but it is really easy to make. Feel free to sub shrimp for other seafood or poultry.

P.S. Please excuse the tacky picture--I was really feeling myself ;-)

P.P.S. Please don't hesitate to season the shrimp VERY good, this dish will get most of it's flavor from the broth left from shrimp.
