Very easy to make - and the food wasn't bad either.

Outstanding! The recipe had me the moment I read chili powder and cumin. My two absolute favorite spices blended together. I added a can of chopped clams to the sauce and although didn't make it "vegetarian" anymore, it was delicious. Thanks for this recipe Cucina!
