  5. Add all other ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes.
  6. Serve with freshly cooked pasta.

Notes, tips, and variations

  • The amounts of the various ingredients are not really important. Experiment and adjust to taste.
  • It is often better to prepare the vegetables the night before as this gives time for the flavours of the chili pepper, garlic, and herbs to diffuse through the mix.
  • Spiral pasta is a good choice, as it holds the sauce to itself.


  • Always wash your hands after handling chili peppers. Be especially careful not to touch your eyes.
