This, my friends, is a dish well named. If you’re tired of boring ol’ spaghetti with sauce out of a jar, look no further – this exotic sauce put on top of any pasta will be sure to break the “boring pasta doldrums”. Plus, it’s super easy and quick – an easy dinner to throw together if you’re late home from work or have a raid to get to ASAP!
Usually, I am not a fan of any sort of pasta at home, but the prospect of something different than usual made this much more appealing – plus, I got the chance to shop for interesting pasta! I found some great fusilli at Vitamin Cottage to make this with and it tastes absolutely great.
Holy Fire Pasta
- 1/2 cup of marinara sauce
- 1/4 cup of olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon of garlic pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder
- 2 teaspoons of red curry powder
- 2 tablespoons of chili powder
Cook your pasta according to the directions on the package. (Don’t forget salt or oil in the pasta to keep it from clumping – and make sure and taste it every so often to make sure you don’t overcook it!) While the pasta is cooking, mix together your ingredients in a small saucepan and heat on medium. Spoon over a dish of pasta – with this sauce, a little goes a long way. This is as much about the pasta as it is about the sauce, kids. Enjoy!
Disclaimer: I wasn’t kidding when I said that this was aptly named! It really does have some fire to it so I would recommend you might cut back on the chili powder if you know your tolerance for heat is low.
