10 Minute Spaghetti Fra Diavolo

I created this recipe the other night around 10:00 p.m. when I was STARVING!! I was actually working on another post and realized that I hadn’t eaten dinner! For those of you who know me, you know I have to eat regularly.  Otherwise, I am very cranky! BUT, three kids under three can prevent you from actually eating at the dinner table.  I try to grab a bite here and there between my son’s “mommy, may I haves” and my daughters trying to climb out of their highchairs, but most nights I am hungry later in the evening.  The night I created this amazingly simple, spicy dish I was craving pasta.  I simply boiled the spaghetti in chicken stock, allowing most of the liquid to absorb into the pasta.  Stirring the whole time, I added 1 whole tablespoon of cracked red pepper to the pan with a pinch of freshly ground black pepper.  Once the liquid was almost completely absorbed, I turned off the heat, added Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley – that’s it!!  It is delicious and PERFECT when you’re in a pinch for time.  Obviously, this one is not for the kiddos :)
