1 1/4 lbs large (21/25) shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 (14 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed well
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1/2 cup sliced green onions, white and light green portion
1 Tbsp minced garlic
2 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp lime zest
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp ground cumin
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1 small avocado, sliced

1. Preheat a gas grill over moderately high heat to about 450 - 475 degrees.
2. Thaw the cauliflower and put in a large bowl.
3. Add shrimp to bowl along with black beans, corn, green onions, garlic, olive oil, lime zest, lime juice, and cumin. Season with salt and pepper (about 1 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper), then toss gently to evenly coat.

Easy Cheesy Tortellini Pasta Bake

An easy pasta dish that takes two minutes to prep, and 50 minutes to bake. Just to note, I used vegetable stock instead of beef stock as this is one of my meatless meals.


1 16oz jar of spaghetti sauce (my jar was 23 oz. and I used the whole thing)
1 14 oz can of diced tomatoes, drained
1 10 oz can of fat free reduced sodium beef broth (can substitute vegetable broth)
1⁄4 cup Zesty Italian Dressing
18 oz refrigerated cheese filled pasta (mine was 20 oz. and worked fine) (can also use ravioli)
1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese


1. Heat oven to 375 degrees

2. First combine sauce, diced tomatoes, broth & dressing in a 13×9 baking dish.

3. Add pasta and toss to coat. Cover and bake for 50 mins.

4. Take out of the oven and top with cheese. Let stand for 5 mins until the cheese melts.
