Directions

In a food processor, combine the peppers, onions, shallots and olive oil and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into a saucepan and reduce the sauce over low heat for 15 to 25 minutes. Then bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Mix in the spaghetti and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the pasta and toss with the sauce. Garnish with Parmesan, sliced habanero peppers and a whole habanero on top!

Cook's Note: Add more habanero peppers for a hotter sauce.
