"An easy weeknight recipe and an interesting variation on plain tomato sauce. Clam juice adds a nice salty bite without tasting 'fishy,' and lime juice lends brightness."

  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion, garlic, and jalapeno; cook until onion is soft and translucent. Stir in tomatoes, tequila, water, clam juice, and red pepper. Bring to a boil, then add macaroni. Cover, and simmer, stirring frequently, until pasta is tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in lime juice.



This was pretty good. I would add more of the pickled jalapenos next time. Also, I put in the lime juice with the other liquid, instead of waiting til the end.

Very tasty and very easy to make. A little spicy for my taste, but good. Next time, I will probably use fresh, roasted jalopenos instead to turn the heat down.

VERY GOOD, just like the one that I have at the italian resturant that's in town!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My husband didn't care for this - thought it was too spicy. My daughter loved it! If I make this again, I'll probably use less red pepper.

I really like this recipe, it's easy and with the exception of the Clam juice, it's all standard pantry items. I will add shrimp next time to make it a more substantial meal, but I am really hap...
