If I had to make a list of my all-time favorite things to eat, soup, shrimp and coconut would be right there at the top of the list. Okay, so they would be after bacon, but still right there near the top.
Okay, maybe behind chocolate too — but still at the very head of the class.
So this speedy little soup is a great favorite of mine. It combines shrimp and coconut milk with angel hair pasta and it all comes together in a delicious, rich-tasting mixture that is part soup, part stew, and totally wonderful.

It’s like a little taste of the tropics, right here in the middle of snowy, cold, snowy, windy, snowy February.
