“A quick and inexpensive pasta dish. I have never made it for anyone else so it could just be my taste but I think it has a good flavor to it. If you dont have the pepperchinis (they come in a jar)then you can always sub with the pepper rings; hot or mild. (they also come in a jar) The amount of heat/flavor you want will determine the amount of peppers you use. I used 1/2cup. I never salt this dish as the peppers give it enough.”

  • 1 large ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped fine
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, chopped fine
  • 12 cup chopped pepperoncini peppers or 12 cup pepper rings
  • 12 teaspoon pepperoncini pepper juice, from pepper jar that peppers were in. (optional)


  1. cook pasta according to directions on box.
  2. in a separate saute pan; heat all other ingredients until very warm; not wilted.
