“I developed this recipe because I wanted something that had a spicier flavour than instant products readily available in your local grocery store but I wanted the ease with which to make it too. I think this recipe is easy to follow and versatile too. You can add any vegetable that you may have in the house and adjust the spices to suit yourself. You can change the type of pasta/sauce used too. Everytime you make it, it can be different from the last time! You can even make it using ground chicken, turkey, or even seafood (or with no meat at all!) Enjoy!”
