Basil Habañeros Marinara Penne Pasta Notes

Hot and spicy!


Serves / Yields

4 Servings

Preparation Instructions

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and pepper and cook until both are softened, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, oregano, salt and pepper and cook over medium heat, uncovered, for 20 minutes.

Toss the sauce with the pasta. Add basil and toss several times.

Remove from heat and serve immediately. Top with basil, and season to taste with salt, pepper, and freshly grated Parmesan Reggiano cheese.

Helpful Hints

Be very careful in handling the Habañero peppers. I wear latex gloves.

You can substitute green bell peppers for Habañero peppers, for a traditional Marinara sauce.

Leave off the parmesan for a vegan recipe.
