Simple spicy pasta

Recently I have received a sample of all products from Ariosto seasoning. Ariosto is an Italian brand which produces different kind of seasonings.  As most Italians I was familiar with those for roasted potatoes, grilled fish and roasted meat, but I didn’t really know the ones for pasta. I tried the chili peppers and garlic seasoning and I was hooked. It was spicy and delicious. I made pasta 2 days in a row using it.

The seasoning is so good, that it is enough to pair it with good oil and well cooked pasta to have a winning meal. And this pasta above I made for lunch in the time needed to take a shower. Of course you can do your own mix of spices and reproduce the mix using chili powder and garlic and salt, but it’s going to be hard.

I know I’m sounding like a commercial, but although they send me the free samples, they are not paying me and these opinions are my own. If you are curious to try the product, you can find it online here and in specialty stores, particularly on the East Coast. For more info check out their website.

    I love the idea of chilli in pasta. Spicy (if not too overwhelming) always is a big hit with me.
