Spicy Shrimp Creole

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 ounces fresh mushrooms, chopped (about 2 cups)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
8 large cloves garlic, chopped
2 teaspoons to 2 tablespoons Cajun (Creole) seasoning for seafood
1/2 to 1 1/2 teaspoons dried crushed red pepper
28-ounce can crushed tomatoes with added puree
1 14 1/2-ounce can stewed tomatoes (preferably Cajun-style)
1 pound uncooked shrimp, shelled, deveined

Heat oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms,
onion, green pepper and garlic and saute until onion is translucent,
about 5 minutes. Add Cajun seasoning and crushed red pepper and
stir 1 minute. Mix in crushed tomatoes and stewed tomatoes with
their juices; simmer until sauce is thick, stirring occasionally,
about 15 minutes. Add shrimp and simmer until just cooked through,
about 5 minutes.

NOTE: This is just the ticket for spicy-food aficionados. Serve it
over rice-and keep a fire extinguisher nearby. If your taste is a
little less adventurous, start with only 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
and 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes; then adjust as
the mixture cooks
