1/2 cup zucchini, sliced
1/4 cup of fiesta garden salsa (buy a brand that contains black beans and corn)
1/2 ounce Monterey Jack cheese, coarsely grated
Chopped cilantro for garnish
1 tortilla, corn or whole-wheat
Put shrimp on one side of pasta bowl, zucchini on the other. Pour salsa over shrimp. Cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for five minutes. Lift up wrap and sprinkle shrimp with grated cheese; sprinkle cilantro over all. Cover again so cheese will melt. In the meantime, put tortilla between damp paper towel and microwave on high for 20 to 30 seconds.
