Fiery Fra Diavolo Sauce

You are watching: Fiery Fra Diavolo Sauce


Fra diavolo sauce, with its tomato, spicy and fresh basil flavors, is a killer on pasta. It’s the perfect base for many popular fra diavolo pasta dishes (such as chicken, seafood, or shrimp fra diavolo), but don’t just add this spicy sauce to pasta. It’s a great dipping sauce with bread sticks. Mozzarella sticks and fresh veggies, or try mixing it with eggs to spice up your breakfast.

Crushed red pepper is the source of heat in this fdiavolo sauce recipe. So adjust the spiciness to suit your tolerance level. A tablespoon is a good place to start. But if you choose a “saucier” sauce, add tomato puree. (Optional) Try adding a second tablespoon for even heating.
