    I cooked some shrimp in garlic, butter and oil until pink. Stir fried the squash, peppers, onion until almost tender. Added a little diced tomato in juice with some powdered chicken bouillon, Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper. Delicious and a complete meal in just a few minutes,

    I made this the other day but I cooked sliced turkey kielbassi with the onion and peppers. I also used orzo and after the veggies and sausage cooked for a while, I added the orzo (about 1 cup dry) to the pan and browned it for a little while. I then added 1 can of diced tomatoes, undrained, and a little water if needed, covered the pan while the orzo cooked through. A hit without too much trouble.
