My inspiration for this super spicy dish was “Fra Diavolo” an Italian dish meaning “Brother Devil” that is traditionally made with tomato sauce spiked with red pepper flakes and seafood, usually shrimp. I took this recipe a step further by also adding chicken and Chipotle peppers into the mix. I was seriously craving spicy food! Extremely spicy food.
A generous dose of chipotles and red pepper flakes went into my homemade tomato sauce to give it rich, bold, and sassy flavor. To add a bit of balance I mixed in milk and sour cream. The result was exactly what I was looking for. Super creamy and spicy enough to cure my craving. The measure of success? The lip tingling and wisps of fire in my breath that temporarily turned me into a dragon. I didn’t name it fire-breathing dragon pasta for nothing. And I mean that in the best way.
