Instructions

Grease a 2-quart casserole. Melt 2 tablespoons of the unsalted butter, do not burn or scorch. Add garlic powder, parsley and 3 cups of the tomatoes. Cook mixture 5 minutes. Mix flour with remaining 1/2 cup tomatoes,to form a smooth paste. Add to garlic/parsley/tomato mixture and cook an additional 2 minutes longer.

Then add seafood and sauteed mushrooms, salt and pepper if desired. Pour directly into greased 2-quart casserole, sprinkle with dry bread crumbs, dot with remaining butter.
