Spicy Cajun Shrimp and Grits

2 cans chicken broth
3/4 cup quick cooking grits
1 (1/2) cups Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup green onions, sliced
1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tsp. dried thyme
Salt to taste
1 tbs. Cajun seasoning
4 slices of cooked and crumbled bacon for garnish
Season shrimp with the Cajun seasoning and thyme and set aside.
In large skillet, melt the butter and saute the mushrooms, green onions and garlic for 5 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook for 5 more minutes, stirring frequently. Remove shrimp to a plate and add the wine and cook for 2 minutes or until reduced by half. Add the other 1/2 cup of cheese and continue cooking and stirring until cheese melts.
Spoon the shrimp over the grits and drizzle with the cheese sauce and top with bits of crumbled bacon. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until the top starts to brown and the cheese is bubbly.
