"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Personal Notes:
This is a spicy hearty sauce that I've been serving for all of my adult life. My kids love it. Until now, the recipe hasn't been written down, therefore, every time it is a little different. I think it is a little more spicy the way I make it now. I don't think it's too spicy especially when you pour it over unseasoned spaghetti noodles. Try it! I think you will like it!
