Awesome! My family said this was better than Fra Diavlo we had previously eaten in a restaurant. Easy and delicious.
I made this for Valentine's Day dinner and I'm glad I did. Everyone really liked it. I've had it at restaurants and I agree with shelliej that it was as good, if not better, than most Fra Diavolo that I have had in fine dining establishments. I followed the recipe exactly except that I didn't use squid because our grocery store didn't have it. When I was adding the red pepper flakes, I overfilled the teaspoon and figured I would just let it go but man did it get SPICY! My husband and son both really loved it with the extra spice but it was too much for me. I think next time I'll cut back a bit on the red pepper because the sauce was delicious even with the extra spice and it seems like it would be very versatile with any kind of meat. I will be making the sauce a lot more often and I'm excited to try it with chicken. Thank you for posting. This one is a keeper!
