This sauce was divine, delectable, drinkable. It had a great bite/heat to it, and would work great with any pasta instead of a tomato-based sauce. I cooked the shrimp right in the sauce until opaque.

great and easy to make. the sauce (no shrimp added) freezes well. I have also added sauted chopped tasso ham for an extra kick.
