“This is a wonderfully spicy cream pasta with a hint of garlic and shallots. You also can add sauteed chicken or shrimp. Very easy and quick sauce to make if you are looking for a spicy entree.” - by STEFANIE74

I recommend wearing rubber gloves when handling the habanero, and when you're cooking it make sure you have plenty of ventilation in the kitchen.
