Spicy Arrabbiata Sauce

Ever wanted to make your own tomato sauce from scratch? Well, that’s what we’re doing today! We’re whipping up a spicy arrabbiata sauce and will be pairing it with pasta. The pasta pairs with the arrabbiata sauce so well and can be totally customized with your favorite toppings. And the recipe takes only takes 20 minutes to cook! You can catch up on our podcast while you’re cooking, or you can just relax on the couch because life is busy and you also deserve that R&R.

For those of you wondering, arrabbiata who? Arrabbiata is a traditional Italian sauce usually made from garlic, tomato, and dried red chilis. It’s so simple, but packs quite the punch.

Now to cooking…start by adding the peeled tomatoes and sauce from the can into a bowl and break them apart into chunks with your hands or with a masher. Set aside. In a medium pot, heat the 1/4 cup of olive oil, and add the garlic and onion. Sauté on low heat for 3-4 minutes. Add the red pepper flakes and tomato chunks into the pot. Stir and allow to cook for 20 minutes with the lid on, over low-medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Adjust for salt, as needed. Toss with pasta, and enjoy with your favorite toppings! Some of ours include olive oil, parmesan, white beans, burrata, fresh herbs, and/or pepper
