Need to add more cayenne pepper (about 3X) and less chicken broth to make the sauce more thick. Otherwise, it was a great spicy pasta.
I didn't find this dish spicy at all. In fact, I found it lacking in flavour. It is a very good basic recipe, though, and I would make it again, adding much more cayenne and other spices as well.
