This is such a yummy, spicy dinner! Sometimes, if I'm in a hurry, I will use a large can of diced tomatoes instead of chopping up the fresh. You could also add some chicken to this dish if you would like.

We enjoyed this very much. I added two chicken boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces that I cooked in about 1 tbsp of olive oil and seasoned with cajun seasoning and some of Emeril's Essence seasoning to the sauce right before I tossed everything together. For us, that made 4 servings (I cooked about 3/4 lb of linguine)
