Today she discusses how to make fried spaghetti and shrimp.

 Oh, my! If you have never tried making stir fried spaghetti with shrimp
at home, you are on a long thing. This might sound like a very dramatic
statement but really, you’ve just gotta try this. 
 
Apart from being so
easy to make this is definitely going to work up your appetite even if
you are not a spaghetti fan. Unlike jollof spaghetti
which features a combination of tomatoes and pepper as the main event,
this needs just curry powder for colour + taste and veggies…Yum!
 
 The
fresher the cooked veggies turn out in the end, the tastier it
is.There’s this thing i love about spaghetti that doesn’t stick
together. I guess it makes everything worth it don’t you think.
