This signature late-night "snack" from Chef Frank Stitt of Highlands Bar and Grill in Birmingham, Alabama is a fine example of how super simple can translate to so very satisfying. A warming combination of minced jalapeños and plenty of minced fresh garlic give this freshly dressed pasta a spicy personality.
