Spicy Bow Ties

This was a random pick off the internet.  It turned out decently.  Jon enjoyed it and I thought it was okay.  It was definitely nothing phenomenal (unlike yesterday's post).  It's an interesting mix of ingredients to create the sauce over bow ties.  The creator did a great job of keeping it low fat for those weight-conscious readers. We doubled the recipe, if you're cooking for one, you definitely don't need to!  Check it out!
