Reviews for Spicy Pepper Penne
"quick and easy"
"quick and easy dish for a last-minute or weeknight meal! I substituted arrabiata sauce for the cream--it kept it lighter and added a little more spice. Delicious! It will definitely be a family staple."
"My boys favorite dish. The one thing I must make every time they are home from college."
"Great recipe! The whole family loves it. One of our favorites. We have even added chicken to it-it's delicious!"
"We LOVE this recipe just as written. It is our teenage boy's favorite and most requested recipe. So easy and tasty!"
"We love this dish but changed the pepperoni to cooked italian sausage. This seem to cut down on the greasyness."
