Had a bit of a sweet/sour taste that was very unique. It is a nice recipe that does well at combining shrimp with spaghetti and doesn't taste like the norm for either dish. The shrimp flavored bouillon cube does add a lot of flavor, so be warned if you aren't a big shrimp/fish fan. We liked this, and I will continue to make on special dinner nights.
