    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    Paprika, cumin, and ginger lend their aromatic alchemy to a simple, no-cook tomato sauce. You can use the sauce with a wide range of ingredients(see Variations). One variation is vegetarian. With its competing spices, strong-flavored cilantro, and acidic tomatoes, this pasta dish calls for a simple Italian white--a pinot grigio, for example. Notes: I use fresh tomatoes instead of canned.

      This pasta was very different and very good. I loved all the spices in it. Everyone loved this for dinner tonight too, thanks! Made this for ZWT4 for the Chic Chefs.

      This is a very different spin on your typical penne recipe. The combination of spices gave the sauce a flavor that is hard to describe, but good. I love cilantro and especially am fond of it in pasta dishes. This meal came together very quickly, which is nice, because I was short on time. I made it with the shrimp and topped with fresh parm. I imagine the recipe would have been improved with the poster's suggestion of using fresh tomatoes over canned, however, I used what I had on hand at the time. Made for ZWT4.

      I used a basic tomato sauce in place of the canned tomatoes, and I realize now that I used almost twice as much as the recipe called for, and about half the amount of olive oil. I cooked the shrimp in with the sauce which I heated on the stove, but I don't think that was necessary. We had the sauce over some packaged gnocchi I bought instead of the penne and it was really tasty. My DH was skeptical when he saw me put the ginger in the sauce, but it turned out really well. I also used cilantro and parsley. The lemon, cilantro and touch of ginger made it taste slightly Asian and was a really awesome unique sauce for pasta.
