“This is a great favorite of anyone who loves spicy sauces for pasta and can be made either vegetarian or with my way with a good Italian Pancetta. The ultimate way is to use fresh tomatoes and not canned but canned works as well to save time. The amount of herbs and hot pepper can be adjusted to your own tastes but this guideline is awesome.”
