Spicy Tomato Spaghetti

Wow! This tasty Spicy Tomato Spaghetti recipe packs the heat and wakes up your taste buds!

I really like this spicy twist on a traditional tomato spaghetti dish. Due to the heat level, I wouldn't recommend this recipe for kids. If you or your family prefer a milder flavor, reduce the red pepper by half.

Spicy Tomato Spaghetti
·12 oz. GF spaghetti noodles (I use Tinkyada's Brown Rice Spaghetti)
·2 TBS EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
·2 tsp minced garlic
·1 tsp ground red pepper
·1 tsp dried oregano
·1 – 14oz. can diced tomatoes
·Parmesan cheese

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add a pinch of salt and spaghetti noodles; cook according to package directions. In a large skillet, heat EVOO over medium heat. Add garlic, red pepper, and oregano, and cook for 30 seconds. Add diced tomatoes, and crush with the back of a spoon (leave the sauce slightly chunky). Simmer until warm, about 10 minutes. Add tomato sauce to the pasta, and toss to coat. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese on top.

I adapted this recipe from the May 2011 Glamour issue.
