loved this soupy spaghetti. At my home, my husband always likes his pasta to have lots of sauce, I prefer as little sauce as I can. I think this soupy pasta is the middle ground we can both agree on.

This sounds excellent with the shrimp, but what is Birds Eye Chili? Sounds interesting!

Debbi Does Dinner Healthy....Thanks for the invite. Have sent you my entry. Bird's eye chili is a type of chili, smaller in size but much hotter than green or red chili. These are best suited for those spicy food lovers...
