Nice heat from the flakes, sweetness form the meaty red bell pepper and onions, rich nicely spiced sauce that doesn`t need any salt. I used 3.5 ounces chick and hen mushrooms. Roasted garlic and roasted garlic oil. Went for a slight pinch of my habanero chili pepper flakes. Used home canned fresh tomatoes that I gave a quick swirl in the blender. This did make enough sauce for 1 pound of pasta. I used whole wheat linguine. I kept the clams out of the main sauce and just added for my husband and myself. As my son won`t do seafood. It is too bad no one reviewed this for the contest because it is a winner.
Paula, you did great with this! Thanks. Made for hidden gems.
