This recipe for a Latin inspired spaghetti was developed by the good people at the Scorpion Bay Hot Sauce Company. We recommend this version to spice things up a bit and bring your taste buds back to life. Winter can really dull your senses with all that bland comfort food.

  • 2 Large Portabella Mushrooms diced
  • 5 Sticks Celerydiced
  • 1 Bunch Cilantro Minced
  • 4 Garlic Cloves Finely Minced
  • 1 Bottle Scorpion Bay De Arbol Hot Sauce (Adjust more or less according to personal taste)

Additional Ingredients:

2 large cans Spaghetti Sauce, use your favorite flavor
1 Pound ground turkey or ground beef

4 Tb Chili Powder

3 Tb Italian Seasoning

1 Large Bag Monterey Cheese, shredded

Simple Directions:

  1. Saute onions and garlic, saute until onions are translucent.
  2. Add 1 pound ground turkey or ground beef, and spices cook meat until brown.
  3. Add all other vegetables, spaghetti sauce, cilantro and hot sauce.
  4. Simmer for 20-30 minutes Boil pasta in water until cooked al dente.
  5. Plate the pasta, add sauce, top with a large mound of cheese and serve!
