SPICY Chicken Rigatoni

I made this for dinner a couple nights ago and it was incredible! Steven loves spicy food (he will put hot sauce on anything) so I was intrigued by this recipe.

I haven’t used red pepper before (besides sprinkling on pizza), but damn, those little flakes are spicy!

This dish is super flavorful and spicy. The peas add a little texture and the rigatoni cuts the spice just a bit so your tastebuds don’t totally explode. Pair it with a caesar salad and some wine and you have yourself a great meal!

I found this recipe on Pinterest, and it seems to have come from the resteraunt Buca di Beppo. I have never eaten there before, but their spicy chicken rigatoni is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
