Some Like It Hot!

I arrived home from work today with pasta on my mind and discovered no jarred sauce in the pantry. Quickly surveying what was available I whipped up a quick marinara. The aroma was unbelievable and we could not wait to dig in. The first taste led me to rethink the ingredients (it was spicy and not just a little bit). I used two cans of petite diced tomatoes with green chiles. Now I've used these before and never had the HEAT issue I encountered tonight. So beware, those substitutions may yield something decidedly different than what you expect. We've decided spicy spaghetti is definitely something we'll try again, but I'll be in control of the spices!
