Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the butter in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Stir in bell pepper, onion and celery. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, stirring 2 or 3 times, until vegetables are tender, yet still crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, combine spaghetti sauce and diced tomatoes with chilies in a separate, medium saucepan over medium heat. Cover, bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Add shrimp to the Dutch oven and increase heat to high. Cook 2 to 3 minutes while tossing, until shrimp are pink and just opaque in the center. Add sauce; stir well and return to a simmer. Serve shrimp over rice.
