Simple Pineapple Rice

Our delicious dinner last night.....

I make a Pineapple Fried Rice that gets a little complicated when your short on time. So, I came up with something easier. I served sauteed Caribbean seasoned shrimp on top of it and we had Spicy Caribbean Pumpkin Soup on the side (I had this pre-made in the freezer and just microwaved).

This dinner only takes the amount of time that it takes the rice to cook, about 25 minutes. When the rice is almost done, you can put on the shrimp, they only take about 5 minutes to cook.

1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 cup chopped onion
1 small can pineapple tidbits, drained
1 cup regular rice
1 teaspoon ham seasoning base (Better than Bouillon)

Cook the rice according to package directions, with the addition of ham seasoning in the water.

While the rice is cooking, saute the red bell pepper, onion and pineapple until onion and pepper are tender.

When the rice is done, stir in the pineapple mixture.
