Reading comprehension is essential.

So, we had this baggie of red pepper seasoning blend given to us by a friend. Quite easy: Boil pasta, fry seasoning blend with two teaspoons of oil, then mix with pasta and enjoy.

Smelled wonderful as the herbs cooked.

With the first forkfull, I immediately ran to the kitchen and began cutting a few slices of bread to eat, as my mouth was painfully on fire.

The two teaspoons referred to the seasoning blend, not the oil. I had used the entire bag, which was about 8-10 times the amount needed for a half pound of pasta.
