    6      tablespoons   margarine
    1      can           Ro-Tel tomatoes and green peppers
    1      medium        Bell pepper -- chopped

    1      teaspoon      Worcestershire sauce
    1      can           Cream of mushroom soup
                         Juice of 1/2 lemon
      1/4   c            Parsley, chopped -- or 1 1/2 T. dried

 Saute onions, bell pepper, garlic, celery and tomatoes in margarine,

 ingredients except green onion tops and cook for 5-10 minutes, until shrimp

 Serve over hot rice, garnished with green onion tops, if desired. 
 This makes a very generous 4 servings.

 NOTES : This was absolutely delicious. I made some changes in the recipe. I
 cut the margarine from 1 1/2 stick to only 6 Tbsps., instead of 4 stalks of
 celery I used 2-3 and only 2 onions instead of 3; and I used only 1 1/4
 pound shrimp. It was perfect.
 Nice company dish. Much of the work can be done well ahead of time and
 finishing up takes only about 5 minutes.
