VERY similar to GREEN MILL's DESERT FIRE PASTA...(just add noodles!). It is a spicy pasta sauce and when used with fat free ingredients, is a low calorie, low fat pasta sauce with a kick! If used with fat free cream cheese, fat free ricotta cheese, fat free sour cream, and fat free half & half, your calorie/serving would go down to 116 and your total fat/serving would go down to 8.2. (keep in mind that other nutritional facts would also be altered, such as saturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, monounsaturated fats, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, etc.)
