In large skillet, heat 1 Tbsp olive oil. Lightly cook the shrimp with the onion and garlic. Add tomatillos, jalapenos and olives. Saute until shrimp are pink all the way through. Add salsa and season with salt & pepper to taste.

Top with diced tomatoes and then with cheese. Melt the cheese under the broiler.

Garnish with the green onions. Place portion of angel hair pasts on plate. Top with shrimp mixture.

** chicken breast, cut up, can be used instead of the shrimp, or you can use avocados instead of any meat at all or in addition to the meat. A combination of 1/4 lb shrimp and 2 avocados, diced in large chunks is good.

Stir the pasta, tomatoes, avocados, and green onions into the shrimp mixture, top with the cheese, and broil until melted. Then serve.
