Arrabbiata Tomato Pasta Sauce- Spicy Pasta Sauce
“Arrabbiata” Tomato Pasta sauce (Tomato and Chilli Pepper Pasta Sauce), also called “ Sugo all arrabbiata” in Italian, is a spicy sauce for pasta, that belongs to the Roman cooking tradition. It is made with tomatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, parsley, and red chili peppers cooked in olive oil.
Arrabbiata sauce combines perfectly with any plain pasta dish. It is often best enjoyed with penne, which are small ridged tubular pasta. The ridges help hold the sauce, and the tubes can also fill with the sauce creating tasty mouthfuls with each bite. When cooking dishes, like “Penne all’Arrabbiata” it’s important to make more sauce than needed, in order to have adequately coated pasta, since part of the sauce will be readily absorbed by the pasta.
