Spicy Shrimp and Rice

Ever have one of those Saturdays when you look up and see it is time for dinner and you haven't even thought about it yet? I just started grabbing left over ingredients until I was happy with the combination.

Spicy Shrimp and Rice

2 tbs olive oil
2 tbs onions, diced
1/4 cup yellow peppers, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
16 shrimp, I used 21-30
1 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp marjoram
1 cup rice, cooked

Heat a saute pan over medium heat. Add the olive oil, then add the onions and peppers. Heat until the onions and peppers are soft. Add the garlic and cook until it gets fragrant. Then add the shrimp. Cook for a minute or 2 then add the tomatoes and spices. While the tomatoes are heating up put the rice in a serving dish. When the shrimp and tomatoes are done remove from heat and pour them on the rice.
