Preheat Oven 400°

Using a dutch oven melt butter over medium heat. Add green onions and peppers. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally or until peppers are tender.  Stir in shrimp, sausage ,garlic, and creole seasoning; cook for 2 minutes continuing to stir all ingredient together. Reduce heat to low;  add cream cheese and stir until cheese is melted.

Remove from heat and stir in ½ cup of parmesan cheese. Spoon mixture into a 2 qt baking dish.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Bake at 400° for 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly and lightly browned (or if you’re like me.. a little toasted brown in certain place). Sprinkle with parsley and serve warm with French bread for dipping.
