Creamy Aleppo Chili Pasta (aka Flavor-bomb pasta) for you!❤️

I highly recommend taking a trip to your local Middle Eastern shop or ordering Aleppo Chili flakes online🌶 They are mild, slightly savory and oily with earthy tones.

I buy them in super size bulk packages because I use them a lot in my cooking (as many of you already know🥰)
