Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp
This dish is a fusion of Italian and Mexican. You can change the ingredients to what you may have in your pantry. If you like it hot and spicy you may increase the red pepper or even use green chilies and more black pepper. On the other hand, if you don't like it too hot reduce the quantity. You can substitute scallops, or pounded chicken breast strips, but cook the chicken for about 4 minutes.
