The sprinkle of calorie-free sweetener helps round out the flavors in this dish by balancing the acidity of the tomatoes and the saltiness of the cheese. It's the same reason Italian grandmothers add a pinch of sugar to their tomato sauces.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add shrimp; cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes or until done. Divide shrimp evenly among 4 individual gratin dishes; set aside.

Step 3

Return pan to medium-high heat. Add green onions and garlic; cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Add tomatoes, oregano, basil, sweetener, and red pepper; cook 3 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates. Spoon tomato mixture evenly over shrimp, and sprinkle with cheese.

Step 4

Broil 5 minutes or until cheese softens (cheese will not melt).
