About this Recipe

Arrabiata literally means Angry in Italian heheh... The name comes from the spiciness of the chili used in this sauce. Arrabiata sauce is a mix of garlic, tomato, chili flakes & olive oil. As this is my version I made it more rich & flavor full in my own way. I am cooking this dish with Wheat penne so that you can indulge in this healthy, saucy & juicy dish guilt free :) So give it a try now...

Ingredients & Quantity
  • 1 Cup wheat penne (or whatever pasta shape you like)
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 4-5 garlic clove, minced well
  • 1 small capsicum, finely chopped
  • 4 medium tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 4-5 button mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1 tbs chili flakes
  • 1 tbs chili powder
  • 2-3 fresh basil leaves (or dried)
  • 1 tbs oregano dried
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 tbs extra olive oil
  • 1 tbs vinegar
How to cook?
  1. Boil the pasta in a big container with excess water, add salt & 2-3 drops of of oil(any)
  2. When par cooked, strain pasta & don't throw the strained Water. sprinkle some oil using your fingers so that pasta wont stick to each other.
  3. Now in a pan, heat 1 tbs olive oil & add chopped garlic, before the garlic get burnt add onion, mushrooms & capsicum.
  4. Saute them for 2 mins adding salt. so that veges gets soften a bit without getting more cooked.
  5. Now add tomatoes (You can blanch the tomatoes & can make puree as well) & add the strained water of pasta, this will give your pasta a thick & juicy sauce. Cover it with a lid.
  6. Let the tomatoes leave all the juices & get soften completely into a gravy.
  7. Now add chili, chili flakes, oregano & basil. Saute for a min
  8. Now add the boiled pasta stir slowly & add vinegar with stir.
  9. Garnish with some oregano & basil with more extra virgin olive oil. Serve hot with Garlic bread.
Notes
  • You can use pasta of your choice
  • Always cook pasta in excess water & never throw the leftout water. 
  • Always use the pasta water for your gravy, this gives thickness to your sauce
  • You can use cheese on the top at the time of serving if you want.
