My short lived career as a chef led me down a never ending path of spice, but one spice started The Spice Merchant Brand and that was my blackened blend. Along with the blend came this EPIC pasta dish. This flavorful meal has everything you could want out of a pasta; creamy, rich, savory & sweet with a hint of spice.
