    Super easy! I added more shrimp and pasta, because typically a box of spaghetti is 16 oz. So I just added a little more sauce ingredients. I saved some of the pasta water just in case it came out dry, which it kind of did. But it turned out great!

    I thought this was a nice, easy dinner. I didn't have the sweet chili sauce so I used garlic chili sauce and honey. I thought it came out nice and my husband loved it. Next time will use the sweet chili sauce and egg noodles.

    This did not turn out well for me. I thought it was gross. Maybe don’t add it to the pasta.

    I used 1/8 cup of Mayo and 1/8 cup of nonfat Greek yogurt, served it over Banza chickpea linguine and it was delicious! Hearty, flavorful, and spicy

    I used Greek yogurt for the sauce which was delicious and added Cajun andouille sausage which was a hit

    I added more chilli sauce than mayo and subed out garlic for black garlic and used lite mayo but if your not of fan of mayo or greek yogurt use 1/2 light mayo and the other 1/2 soure sream
    Easy, quick, and delicious!

    Really gross... too much mayo, I feel sick just thinking about this. Awful meal.

    Nothing special, too much mayo for me. Recipe never says what to do with the paprika, of course it goes in the sauce but poor attention to detail (In the writer’s defense I do wonder how easy it is to edit a recipe when you find an error.)

    Not bad, but not great. If I make it again I plan to reverse the mayo/sweet chilie ratio.

    This recipe was a wonderful base for me to start a Bang Bang Shrimp dish I could actually eat! Due to sugar intolerance, I substituted the sweet Thai Chili for an Indian Madras Curry sauce. I added liquid stevia drops to sweeten it up. Also added more sriracha to the mix. My noodles were Banza brand chickpea linguine. When I served it, I topped this dish off with cut up green onion pieces, crispy onion strips, as well as some fresh cilantro. To die for....💋

    Shrimp was decent but WAY TOO MUCH MAYO. Kinda tastes weird. Wasn’t able to finish the plate because of the taste. If you love mayo you might enjoy it but otherwise steer clear.

    Great easy dish. I would make it again

    We loved it!! Instead of 1/2 c of mayo, I used about 1/4 c along with a mashed avocado and would definitely do the same next time.
    Too spicy hot! Too much mayo! I will not make this again.

    We liked this okay. Not as spicy as expected but cilantro helped. Should have used more red chile peppers too.
