Spicy Marinara Sauce

Spicy Marinara Sauce

Today we are going to be taking a look at a KILLER Spicy Marinara Sauce.  Nothing says Italian Cuisine more than a classic tomato marinara sauce.  Nowadays we are saving time by opening those bottled or canned marinara sauces at the cost of flavor.  Who makes the best spicy marinara sauce?  I have to say that the best marinara sauce is the one you slow cook at home!

Most American’s have no idea what true, homemade marinara sauce tastes like.  So let me be your genuine Italian Guido and fix that.  NEVER EVER buy canned marinara sauce again.  It’s expensive, you lose flavor and nutrients, and this one tastes much much better.

Sure it will add some time to your day, but YOLO right?  Why waste your life with crappy marinara sauce?

Now this recipe is going to take some time, so buckle up partner, I never said it would be easy, I just said that it would be worth it.

Check out our Rattlesnake Bites Copycat Recipe to pair with this marinara.

Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta

Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta

Today, we are going to take a look at an amazing recipe for my favorite pasta dish, the Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta from The Cheesecake Factory.  This thing is loaded with flavor (and calories) so keep that in mind.  It is super simple to prepare, even though there seem to be a lot of moving parts, it all comes together in the end.  It is the perfect combination of spicy and sweet and savory.

Introduction to The Cheesecake Factory

If you have never been to The Cheesecake Factory, you are definitely missing out.  The huge menu is rather intimidating at first, but you soon realize that most of the menu is Cheesecake.  I think that is why the Cheesecake Factory is so well liked.  No matter what everyone is craving, there is something for everyone.  From Cuban Sandwiches to Asian Salads, to Burritos there is something for even the pickiest of eaters.

What is the Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta from The Cheesecake Factory?

Made using Penne Pasta, the Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta has Chicken breast sauteed in honey.  The sauce is a unique sauce made from Alfredo and Chipotle peppers in Adobo Sauce.  This gives it a beautiful mild kick that you crave as well as a deep smokey flavor.  The sweetness of the honey combined with the spice of the sauce makes an amazing dish that can be enjoyed by everyone.

 

Make sure to check out how to make the Salad Dressing from the Olive Garden or how to make a Cuban Classic, Picadillo, which is a cheap and flavorful addition to your families dinner rotation.

She is a BBQ girl.

Me on the other hand, I love to try all the different sauces like Asian Zing and the Parmesan Garlic Sauce, I have even ventured to the insanely spicy sauces.  I hope to compete in the spicy wing challenge they have.
