2Meanwhile, place lemon zest, parsley and garlic in food processor fitted with metal blade. Process until finely chopped. Set aside.
3When tomato mixture is done, add shrimp, toss to mix. Microwave, uncovered, with 650 watts for 4 minutes. Stir and continue to microwave, uncovered, with 650 watts until shrimp turn pink and firm, 2 minutes. Sprinkle with lemon mixture and serve immediately.
Classic Cajun flavors--the smoky, spicy seasoning; sweet shrimp; and onion, green bell pepper, and celery trinity--give this pasta toss a New Orleans vibe.
