    8-oz. dry whole-wheat linguine pasta
    1½ cups marinara sauce
    1 4-oz. bottle fire-roasted red peppers, cut into thin strips
    ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
    1 cup fresh basil, chopped
    1 Tbsp. Blended Chilies Hot Sauce
    Salt and pepper to taste
    6 Tbsp. Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated (for garnish)


    1.Cook pasta in lightly salted water according to package directions, about 9 minutes.

    3.Cook sauce, stirring it occasionally until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
    4.Remove from heat.

    10.Salt and pepper to taste, and if you prefer, add more Blended Chilies Hot Sauce.

    11.Garnish with grated cheese.
