Ingredients

2 T Olive oil
2 T LC bake mix
6 ozs Shrimp, canned, reserve liquid
6 ozs Crab meat, canned, reserve liquid
2 ozs Cream cheese, room temperature, cubed
1/4 t Salt
1/8 t Garlic, crushed

1 t Prepared horseradish
1/3 C Asiago Cheese, grated
2 T Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 C Half and half, up to 3/4 cup
1 1/2 C Marinara sauce, lowest carb count
1/4 C Parmesan cheese, fresh, finely shredded for topping

Directions

In a two quart sauce pan on medium low temperature, heat olive oil and blend in bake mix. Add the reserved liquids that were reserved from the shrimp and crab, stir well.



To sauce, add cubed cream cheese, salt, crushed garlic, horseradish, and stir until smooth. Add Asiago and Parmesan cheeses and stir until smooth. When the cheeses have been melted and sauce is smooth add shrimp and crab, blend well. Let simmer until heated through.



Finally add half and half a little at a time until the seafood sauce starts to simmer and begins to resemble warm pudding. Let sauce simmer for 12 - 15 minutes. Stir sauce so it will not scorch on bottom.



In a shallow baking dish 9" diameter, spray with non-stick spray and place marinara sauce and carefully spoon seafood sauce on top. Sprinkle with freshly shredded Parmesan cheese and place in a preheated oven at 325, for 10 - 15 minutes, until heated through. Dip should not brown on top.



Serve with parmesan cheese chips (recipe follows)
