Author Notes

We have been killing it on the pasta game recently and this Spicy Adobo Pasta is one of our new favorites. Now, this pasta is not for the mild spice audience. This is a killer, but if you are like us and LOVE a good spicy dish, this is for you. We do add a bit of cheese on top to give it a nice creamy finish but don’t let disguise you from the heat, this dish packs a punch for sure. It is that heat that keeps you coming back though, even though the spice is high, you can’t stop from taking another bite or 15! Check out the recipe below! —marvelous munch
