      Awalde all I seem to say to you is WOW. But boy does this recipe ever deserve 10 stars, wish I could give them. My dh was disappointed, he thought we were having curry...but that certainly changed after he tasted this dish. We both couldn't stop raving about how great it was. The flavor is outstanding, all the spices and herb blended beautifully together to create an unforgettable meal. I did use the coconut milk option. The only problem was that when I went looking for more, it was all gone. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will add to my Best of 2011 Cookbook. Made for ZWT7 for the Witchin Kitchen.

      Shrimp, coconut, lime and pasta? Yes please! This made for a wonderful dinner. I really liked the little kick from the cayenne. Great blend of spices. I only used about 1/2 pound of spaghetti noodles and thought that was plenty. Next time, I'm going to use a wider noodle like fettucine or something even wider. I also doubled the amount of coconut since we love that ingredient. I didn't end up with a sauce, but I think that is just because I didn't use the optional coconut milk. I will try it with that next time. Thanks!
