Penne arrabbiata: angry pasta!

Dinner tonight was made up as I went along: I started with the fridge, and some vege, and some defrosting prawns… And somehow ended up with arrabbiata sauce.

Arrabbiata comes from the Italian for angry; a reference to the heat of the chillis in the sauce. The other key ingredients are tomatoes and garlic. I used dried chilli flakes and a little Tabasco to add heat to my sauce. I also added courgettes for a little more vege in the sauce, and added prawns at the end for protein.

For some reason, penne is popular with arrabbiata – so I went with it.

It all came together beautifully, and tasted pretty fabulous. The suace was pretty spicy until I sitrred it through the pasta and the spice got distributed a little.
