This was such a wild combination I just had to try it! And I'm glad I did. Anyone looking for something unusual? This is from the Hot & Spicy & Meatless cookbook, which also mentions that you can top this with parmesan cheese, though I haven't tried that. This gives pasta a spicy, tropical flavor that is fresh and delicious. Feel free to add some habanero sauce if it's not spicy enough for ya!

Yum! I ran out of cilantro earlier in the week so had to substitute some parsley but it still worked out well. Next time I may thicken up the juices with a bit of arrowroot as it is a shame to lose all that perfectly good fruit juice. My toddler also really enjoyed this and was not scared off by the habaneros at all.

I ran into this recipe about 10 years ago and was about to post it when I did a recipe search and here it is. In my description, I wrote, don't let the name fool you; it's a LOT hotter than that! Don't you just love the way people react? "sounds wierd", "too hot!", "not sure I like it", but they keep eating it!

This tastes pretty bad... It's not the spiciness that's the problem, it's the sweetness. Using orange juice as a sauce and then heating eat up with habaneros is not a good idea. The two flavors do not mix well. I had really high hopes for this dish too, but oh well.
