Sweet coconut and spicy chili team up to make a sassy and delicious pasta sauce. Jazz up your supper with this easy recipe for spicy coconut noodles!
But coconut desserts are the easy part…what’s really exciting is a recipe that lets you incorporate coconut into the main course…now we’re talking!
Main courses featuring the sweet taste of coconut have a special place in my recipe collection. Coconut shrimp risotto, for example.
Or can I interest you in some coconut soup? So I was totally up for figuring out how to swap the classic tomato sauce for a coconut version.
This light sauce is a combo of sweet coconut milk with spicy chili sauce and tomato paste, and the pasta gets tossed with this sauce, some scallions and bean sprouts and topped with…you guessed it, more coconut!
And for dessert, I think I will have me a coconut ice cream sandwich. Because you know they are in my freezer!Print
