Spicy Coconut Noodles

I’m not a huge fan of coconut (exception: piña coladas), so when a co-worker brought this pasta to work for a lunch party a while back, I only took a small helping to be polite. Needless to say, I loved it, went back for seconds, and got the recipe. I decided to add shrimp when I cooked this, and it was a great addition, but you can leave it out or even substitute it with something else, like chicken.

This meal is perfect to make during a busy week — fast to prepare and great as leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day. Plus it’s a combination of flavors that I haven’t/don’t have very often, so I think I’ll have to cook this up more often. Aren’t we all looking for tasty and easy things to make during our busy weeks (and/or weekends)?

If you’re having doubts about this recipe like I was, I encourage you to give it a try! I think you’ll be just as surprised as I was with how delicious it is!
