Spicy Sriracha Ragu Pasta

I love Italian food and I love spicy things.  When you combine sriracha sauce with thyme, garlic, white onion and pasta, I’m in heaven.  This amazing recipe is easy to make and really fun.  I was singing, dancing and really had a good time making it.  The best part, it only takes 20 to 30 minutes depending on how fast you can strip the thyme leaves.

Cuisine: Italian
Servings: 2 people


  • 1 cup crushed Italian tomatoes
  • 1 zucchini quartered and chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 small white onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp sriracha (you can use more or less depending on how spicy you like it)
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan
  • 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (if you like less salt you can use only 1/8 cup)
  • spaghetti noodles
  • olive oil extra virgin
  • sea salt
  • ground black pepper


  • Start by heating a pot of boiling salted water (add extra virgin olive oil so the noodles don't stick together).  
  • While it's heating up, season the ground beef with sea salt and black pepper and then brown it over medium high heat with olive oil.
  • Once the beef is browned, add in the onions, soy sauce and the zucchini and let them soften for about 5 or 6 minutes.
  • Now add the pasta to the boiling water until it's al dente and toss the garlic, thyme and crushed tomatoes into the pan. Once you've let them cook for 30 seconds, add in the sriracha and then let it thicken.
  • Once thickened, place the pasta on a plate and top it with your sauce and you're done.  


It tastes amazing with a Napa Cabernet or even a Cab Franc.
