I got this recipe a few years ago off of another site and I just love it. I make by own chicken both from a chicken bouillon cube which I add the lemon juice (I only add about 1 tsp.) and cornstarch to and set aside. I brown my garlic in a little olive oil then throw in the shrimp. When this is heated up I add the chicken stock. Cook until thicken then I add only a small dash of red pepper powder, a dash of Kitchen Bouquet Browning Sauce and so so soy sauce. Add salt & pepper to taste. And finally I stir in the broken up cooked spaghetti. Heat and eat.

Very good and easy. Added a little white wine to the sauce.

I had a friend of mine, who is a vegetarian, over for lunch today. Made a few modifications to the recipe as a result. Instead of regular pasta I used whole wheat and instead of chicken broth I used vegetable broth. As a result I did have to add a bit of salt to taste as the vegeatble broth doesn't have the sodium you find in the chicken broth so without it, it was a bit bland. Aside from that I also sauteed the garlic a bit before adding the additional ingredients to get the full flavor and added a little garlic powder. One more change was instead of cornstarch I used flour, that was just what I had in my cabinets. Otherwise I followed the recipe pretty close. It was YUMMY! I WILL definitely be making this again.
