    Pagan's Note:

    This is quite spicy and takes a bit of a fuss to make, but it is way more than worth it. If you are serving children, I recommend leaving out the Tabasco and all the peppers, save for the black pepper as it may be way too hot for them. If you love Italian food, I highly suggest giving this a try. It is most excellent and great with any type of pasta. Works well with home baked Italian bread and a nice garden salad with lettuce and spinach.

      This pasta was really good! At first I wasn't really sure, but as I was eating, it was tasting better! I used whole wheat penne, made a half recipe (which made about 4 good size servings) and turkey pepperoni. For once, it actually took a little less for me to make than the stated time which is a plus. Will make this again; DH even had seconds. I do agree that the recipe would make a bit more sense if the ingredients were listed in order. I also did not think it was very spicy.

      this was very good although I did a few things differently. I got confused with the directions after step 3 until 11 so I just did my own thing. I didn't have any bell pepper. But I sauteed the onions, celery, mushrooms and garlic altogether. Then in separate skillet I cooked the chicken with the Texas pete hot sauce and cayene pepper, and pepeproni in a little oil until almost done. Threw chicken mix into larger pot with the onions etc. added the spices to the large pot and tomatoes (I also added another 28oz can of diced tomatoes). I let that simmer for around 30 minutes then started the pasta boiling, while pasta cooked I added 4oz cream cheese cut into chunks and stirred while melting and waiting on pasta. Topped with a little parm cheese. We liked It enough to have again at another time. Thanks

      FANTASTIC! I made this last night for my husband and it was a big hit. I'm a beginner (very) cook and it turned out great! I will definitely make this again, can't wait in fact :)
