“There is this wonderful Italian restaurant in town, Cappetto's, and this is one of their signature dishes. I enjoyed this and told the waiter how wonderful it was. To my surprise the chef came to our table and gave me the simple recipe. This recipe is for 2; however, can be easily adapted for more. Any tube pasta will work great for this dish; penne, rigatoni, etc. Garnish with a couple of fresh jalapeno slices.”
