I used 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes instead of the red chile pepper, 1 tsp. dried basil instead of fresh, 1/4 cup mascarpone cheese instead of 2/3 cup, and I threw in a pound of cooked shrimp at the end -- delicious indeed! Will definitely make it again.

This was a very tasty pasta sauce! I didn't have any fresh red chili pepper, so I added 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes instead. It gave the sauce a nice kick! I topped penne with it, sprinkled fresh chopped italian parsley for a dash of color and grated fresh parmesan on top before serving. Nice flavor!

My fiance and I loved this recipe! I used crushed red pepper flakes instead of fresh red chile pepper and added twice the amount because we love our food a little spicier. Also, I sadly cut the amount of onions by half thinking it'd be too onion-y, but should've just used the original amount in retrospect. I didn't have basil on hand, but the sauce came out just as tasty! I added Polska Kielbasa to the sauce, and it was very complementary with the textures and flavors of the sauce. This recipe is delicious with garlic bread or knots!
