 Lemon Shrimp with Parmesan Rice 

It’s fast and simple. Takes only about 10 minutes from skillet to table.  The creamy Parmesan Rice has so much flavor from garlic and freshly grated Parmesan cheese plus just a touch of lemon juice.  And the Shrimp make it the perfect dish for any time.  Add some peas or asparagus and you have a gourmet meal!
