  • 16 ounces dry fettuccine pasta
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp – peeled and deveined
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat butter or margarine in a large skillet. Add the shrimp, salt and pepper to taste and paprika. Stir with a wooden spatula. When the shrimp become pink (it should take 2 to 3 minutes), remove them with a slotted spoon, leaving the cooking liquid in the skillet.
  3. Add red and green bell peppers, shallots, garlic and salt and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring, about 3 to 4 minutes over medium high heat. Add cognac and shrimp. Cook over medium heat for 2 more minutes.
  4. Add sour cream and yogurt and blend all together. Add cilantro and bring to a simmer for about 30 seconds. Do not boil or sauce will separate. Serve over cooked fettuccine.
