This pepper sauce is at its best when used over either «rigatoni» or «tortiglioni», two types of short pasta, with deep grooves on the outer surface to better retain the sauce («riga» stands for «groove»).

Ingredients

320 g tortiglioni 4 1/2 cups
3/4 cup Pepper Sauce for Pasta 190 mL
1/4 cup pasta cooking water 65 mL
salt [optional]
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated [optional] 6 g

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.

Method

  1. Cook the pasta.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat the pepper sauce in a saucepan over low heat. Add the specified amount of pasta cooking water to dilute the sauce a bit, and warm up just a few minutes.
  3. Put the drained tortiglioni back into the pasta cooking pot, add the sauce and mix well. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired, then serve in the warmed dishes.
