This kind of weather makes us want to cozy up with a warm bowl of comfort...ideally one that isn't a huge hassle to prepare. This easy pasta recipe is a riff on an Italian-American classic but with the brilliant swap out of gochujang chili paste instead of tomato sauce for a spicy kick. The best part? Chopping is optional! Plus it's ready in less than 30 minutes. What's not to love?
