I'm sure this is the right spot to know how to cook a spicy spaghetti. I'm planing to cook a spaghetti but the problem is, don't know how to cook or how to prepare it. Can somebody tell me how to do it or is there a website that I can find a recipe? Thank you in advance!

I usually cook normal spaghetti, then in my sauce I use fresh pepper, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Red pepper flakes are the key. Watch how many you use. They are very strong, and can add a nice spicy flavoring to anything. Another thing you can do is when you first start with your sauce with your tomato sauce and tomato paste, put in a table spoon of franks red hot. It makes a nice spice to your spaghatti. My fiance loves it. Happy cooking.

I have had it where it was prepared with a spicy italian sausage. I think there may have also been some red pepper added to it, but it was pretty good. I am not usually a big fan of spicy foods, but it was really good. Preparing spaghetti is one of the few meals I make with confidence :o), so I usually make the changes in flavor when I season the meat.

The spicy, but tangy and sweet taste comes from the spaghetti sauce itself if you could add a little spice or moderate amount of it according to your taste buds' level of spice tolerance. You can add a little amount (maybe a teaspoon) of red pepper flakes or tabasco on the sauce. For people who love spicy toppings but likes their classic spaghetti sauce unspicy, I suggest that a little bit of jalapeno or dried red pepper flakes may be used as toppings along with quick-melt cheese. You may try creating another variety of spaghetti sauce using curry powder or any sauces with high proportion of turmeric. You can even buy a hot/spicy banana ketchup at any supermarket that sells such stocks and use the ketchup to blend well with the spaghetti sauce of your choice. Don't forget to include pimiento cheese as a topping.
