Spaghetti all’Arrabiata

March 03

The name of this dish refers to the “angry” heat of the chilli in it. My version won’t blow your socks off but of course, you can add more or less chilli flakes depending on your taste.

Method
  1. Heat the olive oil in large frying pan, add the garlic and cook until just turning golden brown.
  2. Add the chilli flakes and cook for a minute. Add the tomato puree and cook for another 2 minutes.
  3. Blitz the tomatoes in a food processor with the tomato puree and then add to the pan. Bring to the boil and simmer over a low heat for 10 minutes.
  4. Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water for 11 minutes or until al dente. Transfer into the sauce and toss with the extra virgin olive oil.
  5. Season to taste. Serve with grated parmesan or pecorino on top.
