Spaghetti Arrabbiata

Spaghetti Arrabbiata- it’s spicy!

Jump to recipe

This is one of my quick and easy recipes-Spaghetti Arrabbiata.

When I go to a restaurant for dinner or lunch, I always try to order something which I normally do not cook at home. Being it something special, or something I am too lazy to cook. Lockdown somehow has changed it as now I finally managed to make a super spicy and easy Sauce Arrabbiata.

I am talking rich in taste but still spicy. Not just burn your tongue spicy. A nice spicy, if that makes sense to you. Just Arrabbiata spicy.

But try it, it’s really simple. But you really need to wear gloves when you cut the chillies. Believe me, your eyes will thank you for it. Cook it with your favourite Pasta- I love Spaghetti or Penne with it and cook them while the sauce is reducing and getting flavour!

And if you are looking for a different Pasta dish, why not try Capellini with spicy Prawns?

Let me know if you cooked it!
