    This dish sounds decadent, but might be a perfect dinner for two on some romantic evening--- or not! Or, maybe you are just in the mood for a rich, yummy pasta dish for absolutely no reason at all!

      We really enjoyed this recipe as it was very tasty & presented nicely, however, the shrimp definitely do not need 8 mins to cook. I cooked for about 2 mins and when put back in the pan to warm in the sauce, they were perfect. Husband loved it & not overkeen on pasta. It was a winner here. Thanks for the recipe

      This is beautiful, colorful, flavorful, and fun to make. You will want to have all ingredients measured, cut, and ready before starting; once the shrimp hits the pan, it goes quickly. I might wish the sauce would thicken and cling better, but that's trivial and fixable. The poblano peppers are not hot; we were able to use exactly the ingredients listed without offending the tender palate in this household. This was a husband and wife collaboration, but the adult sons helped with the eating part. Made for ZWT8.

      This yummy recipe is getting another 5 star review...at first I thought that the cumin was overpowering the dish...but after a few bites it mellowed out and the overall flavors turned into the most wonderful comfort food...a few more bites and you realize that the dish is warming your heart..made as posted and was not disappointed at all...I also only cooked the shrimp for about 2 minutes before I noticed it was done...thanks for posting the recipe...=)
