If you’re looking for comfort food with a burst of spice, look no further. As the name suggests, this pasta is a delicious, creamy pink creation that sits somewhere between a tart tomato sauce and a cheesy Alfredo one. This Italian recipe has many variations, but our version is not just easy to cook, but also exceptional in taste, elevated by a hearty kick of jalapenos.
