Delicious, easy pasta sauce. I am a novice cook, and had no problem making this.I made this with heavy whipping cream instead of heavy cream (that's all the grocery store had) and it turned out very well.A lot of reviewers warned about the spiciness/heat. I found that a little over 3/4 tsp. red pepper flakes was perfect for me-- not too spicy at all. I added 3/4 red pepper flakes at first, then added some more at the end when I found it could be a little hotter.I also used closer to 1 lb. rigatoni instead of 3/4 lb, and I found that there was enough sauce for the extra pasta.
I LOVE spicy foods, but after reading the reviews, I cut back on the spice by 1/4 tsp I am glad that I did! It is plenty spicy. I would make this again.
