Ideas from a new cookbook

I'm testing a new cookbook, so tonight the 2nd recipe. Yesterday I made a chicken pie and it got the thumbs up. Tonight Italian sausage pasta with a bit of chilli this got thumbs up from me but the girls found it too spicy. I do love spicy food, but I understand that it's not for everyone. Some say that spicy food is not good for your complexion either, like chocolate for instance. Well, I never noticed that! I would love to try a variation of this recipe with Chorizo, wonder what the girls would say about that! I'll try to make it less spicy this time, maybe add some more cream too. and tomorrow its time for a very special Spaghetti Carbonara (only not with ham but with salmon!).
