Salt & Pepper to taste Instructions:
1. Cook pasta according to package instructions; drain.

When I (Tammy) made the recipe, I used the full amount of hot sauce (we use Tapatio brand) and we thought it was a little too hot for our tastes. I also used more cheese than the recipe calls for, probably at least double (8 ounces or more), but I didn’t measure that. It was good that way!
