Sauce took a really long time to thicken, it wasn't until the next day's leftovers that the flavours really came together and stood out. It was great then, though!


I found this recipe to be quite tasty! The sauce really surprised me: the spices and wine create a mulled-wine tasting base, which the mango and honey sweeten and the pepper kicks up with some spice. The mixture of flavors (along with the cilantro) make each bit a little bit different, in a good way. I would recommend going a little lighter on the cilantro and skip the olives, but that's just my taste. I also made it with chicken (stir fried w/ a few pieces of mango and honey, added the chicken to the sauce just before serving) and found that to make a nice addition.


This pasta recipe is wonderful. The flavor from the mango mixed with the pepper is so unique and delicious. I use a regular red pepper as opposed to a chile pepper to give it a little less spice, but it tastes excellent either way. I highly recommend this dish for any occasion.
