Spicy Spaghetti Sauce

45 mins (prep 10, cooking 35)
12 ingredients
4-6 servings
This was one of those "accident" recipe's that turned out really great. I was making spaghetti one night and when I went looking for a jar of sauce there wasn't any. The only thing close to a tomatoe base sauce was something that I picked up from a specialty store. You can make it one of two ways (that I've tried anyhow). The first is how I made it the other night with less of a kick. Or with a spicy kick like I made it the first time. The ingredients that say "optional" those are the ones that I added to give it more of a consistency and color. Plus it tamed it. Either way I feel this is pretty good.
