spicy spaghetti - vegan and gluten-free

Spaghetti with a Chuck Norris punch of spice!

This is one of my favourite (favorite) vegan spaghetti dishes. I make it frequently. I found the best gluten-free noodles, Barilla. I’m not sure why it took me so long to find them! I add habanero peppers because I wanted an extra Chuck Norris punch to my dish, but they are optional. I like spicy spaghetti!
