“I found this recipe on and made it with my wife. It came out so good I had to add to my cookbook. If you like Fra Diavolo you'll love this! The version we just made was a little too spicy - I might try cutting down on the red pepper next time - but it was still really delicious. Great over pasta, or on its own as an appetizer (double the serving count for appetizer).”
