- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

Thanks for the great recipe. We love it(minus the cilantro). It is so easy to prepare also.
This did taste fantastic; altho I'm only giving 4 stars because I added WAY more garlic and shallots (does anyone really measure these ingredients anyway??). But seriously, 1 tsp of garlic in a...
