I've also just learnt that arrabbiato means 'angry' in Italian - the name of the sauce comes from the heat of the chilli in the recipe!
For two people, finely chop half a red chilli and one clove of garlic - or more if you prefer a more spicy taste
Heat some oil in a frying pan and cook the chilli and garlic for a couple of minutes. Add some basil leaves and allow to wilt.
Add a tin of chopped tomatoes, 1 tsp sugar and a sprinkle of salt. Cook over a medium heat for about ten minutes
Meanwhile bring some pasta to the boil - fresh penne is good for this recipe
Here's the cooked and slightly reduced sauce as I started to spoon it out of the pan
Serve over the pasta with some grated or flaked parmesan on top.
I'm sending this to Pasta Please as this month they are asking for vegetarian pasta recipes using chilli. The challenge is hosted this month by Allotment 2 Kitchen and is also run by Jacqueline at Tinned Tomatoes.
