      Had this for dinner tonight and it was delicious. We used pre-cooked shrimp, so to heat those we fried them in a buttered wok before stirring them in. Also we added some half-and-half as the spaghetti was stirred in the skillet, which gave it a lovely creamy texture. It came out with a delicate flavour, sweet and savoury and slightly exotic. Will be making this again.
