Shrimp Claire

This dish was created by my grandfather on the night I was born. While everyone else was at the hospital, he made up this dish and waited for the call that I had come into the world.
It's a very easy recipe.

16 oz. peeled shrimp
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 carrot, grated
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 zucchini, grated
1/2 c. cooking sherry
can of tomato sauce

Saute' veggies in a large skillet sprayed with pam (for a fuller-fat recipe, use butter). Add shrimp, sherry, tomato sauce and seasonings. Simmer 10 minutes until shrimp is done. Do not overcook. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve over noodles and garnish with parsley. Serves 4.
