2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
3 medium (3 cups) zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1 medium (1/2 cup) onion, sliced
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with Italian herbs
1 (12-ounce) package frozen medium cooked shrimp, thawed, drained
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
4 cups hot cooked rice or couscous


Melt butter in 10-inch skillet until sizzling; add zucchini, onion and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 3-4 minutes or until vegetables are crisply tender.

Stir in diced tomatoes, shrimp and red pepper. Continue cooking 3-4 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil. Reduce heat to medium. Cover; cook, stirring occasionally, 6-8 minutes or until shrimp are heated through. Serve over rice.

Recipe Tip

To prevent garlic cloves from rolling around on the cutting board, smash them flat first with the wide end of a large knife, such as a French or chef’s knife, then begin to chop.

Eggs Benedict, like this Cheesy Eggs Benedict, is the quintessential brunch dish, but it sure can be challenging to serve to a crowd with so many last-minute elements – toasting English muffins, poaching eggs and making hollandaise sauce.
