Pasta Arrabiata Recipe

I was browsing earlier for easy and affordable recipes to prepare on new year's eve. The last time I dined at Italianni's with a friend we ordered something similar to pasta arrabiata, I am not so sure whether its pasta arrabiata or arrabiato. But sheeessshh, the dish was so delish. You should try it too!

Anyhoo, here's the recipe I found at


  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic (about 5 cloves)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • (28-ounce) can petite diced tomatoes, undrained
  • (29-ounce) can tomato puree
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • (16-ounce) box penne pasta
  • 1/2 cup freshly shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese blend*
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil
  • Garnishes: Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese shavings, fresh basil sprigs

  1. Sauté garlic in hot oil in a 6-quart saucepan over medium heat 1 minute. Add tomatoes and tomato puree. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low. Stir in red pepper flakes and next 4 ingredients; cook, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes.
  2. Prepare pasta in a large Dutch oven according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Return pasta and reserved cooking liquid to Dutch oven, and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  3. Stir basil into tomato sauce, and pour 3 cups sauce over pasta. Toss to coat. Serve with remaining sauce. Garnish, if desired.
  4. *1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese may be substituted.
