Like other comments - I did a little tweaking on the sauce: one time I used red chile flakes and hot sauce in lieu of jalapeno's the other time I used a 7.7 ounce can of chopped jalapeno's (which turned out very spicy!) -but this a great recipe to build on. I served over basmati rice instead of pasta and topped with cilantro. Thanks!

FANTASTIC! I used rice instead of linguini and it was great because it was super spicy for me and my boyfriend who hates spicy foods just used more rice and he loved it too! I also added water chestnuts for some crunch and used plain milk instead of coconut and it worked great.

I wasn't going to rate this since I made quite a few changes - but it was just SO good! For one, we just made the sauce. We didn't have coconut milk - so we pureed regular milk with coconut flakes, strained it, and added some coconut extract (turned out great!). Also, we didn't have any jalapenos - so we just left them out. Then we mixed in some veggies and tossed it with rotini. Served it with my Spicy Orange Shrimp (Stir-Fry Shrimp With Spicy Orange Sauce), and it was a great spicy/creamy combo! Thanks for this recipe, I'll definitely use it again with the shrimp.

To be honest, my BF didn't like this. At first I wasn't sure about it because it was so different than anything I normally eat. I took the leftovers to work and shared them with the office and everyone loved it. Its fairly simple to make, doesn't take alot of time and is different enough to make you think you just ate some exotic cusine. I am not sure if I will make this again but I will definately give the recipe to others.
