You know how it is- it's Friday night and you just can't look at another pizza. This dish will be ready quickly, I promise.

1 box Near East Rice Pilaf
1 lb shrimp, cooked
3 cloves garlic, minced
handful basil, chopped
1/2 lemon, juice and zest
 bunch broccoli, ends trimmed and rinsed
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp butter
Handful toasted almonds

Fill large pot with water, add salt, bring to boil and add broccoli. Cook until fork tender and drain. Cook pilaf as directed and keep covered when done. In skillet, heat olive oil and butter and add garlic. Saute for 2 min. Add shrimp and toss to heat. Add drained broccoli and mix. Take off heat and add lemon juice, zest and basil, stir. Add pilaf to a big bowl and top with shrimp/broccoli. Add toasted almonds on top.
