This is a fiery but quick and easy to make pasta dish. For a milder flavor, simply leave out the chiles.

Fantastic recipe! i loved it! I changed the recipe to my likings though. I sauteed the garlic with dried italian seasoning then i added the onion until is was soft. I then added fresh tomatos and dried chili peppers and simmered it until it looked more like sauce. I added the pasta and mixed. Made this three times in the past month. I LOVE IT! Read More

I make a version of this at home; but I just use a can of Rotel (tomatoes and chili peppers) to decrease a step. Read More

Very good. I was surprised that the sauce did not come out to cover the pasta very well but it didn't really matter once we started eating - the taste was great. Just the right amount of 'kick'. Great blend of herbs and spices. This is a great dish to try out whole wheat pasta. The sauce/herb mixture will overpower any taste you dislike associated with whole wheat. Read More

I thought this pasta was too dry and not all that spicy. I made it as per the recipe then decided to add another can of diced tomatoes along with some crushed red pepper flakes and some curry powder. We ate this with shredded grilled chicken and I think my husband liked the chicken better than the pasta. Read More
