Spicy Cavatappi




Introduction: Spicy Cavatappi

About: I love this site!!!! I love electronics and cooking, both are hobbies of mine I don't get to practice enough.

This instructable will teach you the recipe to make a Spicy Cavatappi similar to Carrabba's Cavatappi Amatriciana. My wife and I love this Italian side dish.

I take no credit for the recipe, just want to spread the wealth!!! Robbies Recipes has a great list of copycat recipes.

Step 1: Ingredients

Cavatappi or similar psata
Medium yellow onion
2 garlic cloves
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (add more if you want it spicier)
1/4 cup olive oil
3/4 cup white cooking wine
2 cans diced tomato, with juice

Grated romano cheese

Step 2: Pasta

Begin boiling pasta, strain when finished

Step 3: Slice'em -n- Dice'em

-Chop onion
-Mince garlic

Step 4: Saute

Saute onion, garlic, and red pepper in olive oil until tender -  Use a medium saucepan

Step 5: Wine Anyone?

Add wine and cook until nearly evaporated.

Step 6: Maters!!!

-Add cans of diced tomato

-Cook until sauce begins to thicken, it will thicken more when its removed from the heat.

Step 7: You Got Served!

Mix desired amount of sauce with strained pasta and top with cheese!!

This goes great with my other Carrabba's copycat recipe 'able!!
These 2 are exactly what I order every time I go there!

Please leave comments on what you think of the recipe, and tell me how I could improve this 'able!!

    I do almost exactly this.  It's also good with vodka rather than wine, and some black olives, shrimp, and/or capers are also awesome additions.
