A spicy Italian Pasta dish where you can vary the amount of red pepper to make this dish as spicy as you like it. Top with Parmesan cheese, if desired. Buon Appetito!
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1/4 pound thinly sliced pancetta bacon, chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 (14.5 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 1/2 pound uncooked spaghetti
- salt and pepper to taste
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon, onion and red pepper flakes until onion is tender but not browned.
Stir in the tomatoes and wine; simmer for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
Add pasta to the sauce and toss well; simmer for 2 to 3 minutes more (this will infuse the pasta with the sauce). Add salt and black ground pepper to taste; serve.
