Arrabbiata Pasta Sauce
The Italian translation of this is "angry" sauce… so it's perfect for those who love a bit of heat. It is full-flavoured and spicy – a small amount can go a long way! However, you can also serve this with meatballs or steamed veggies to make it go even further.
Recipe Tester Feedback: “A delicious tomato-based sauce that has a good spicy kick. We loved it and will probably try to always keep some on hand in the freezer." - Sue
