This pasta dish is not only super yummy, but it is also simple to prepare. It's ideal if you want to fix a light and quick meal. Hot and spicy chilies are the secret of this recipe, using whole chilies would be a plus.

Penne all' arrabbiata- literally 'Angry Penne' - is a traditional meal from central Italy that gets its name due to the presence of hot chilies which, when eaten, can make your face goes quite red similar to when one gets angry!

To add some extra flavour try to top with pecorino shavings before serving 🍝.

Foodacious Tips


  • An easy way to visually check if the pasta is al dente is to inspect a piece of pasta cut into half, if you see a think uncooked ring in the middle then it means it's ready.

  • Avoid finishing to cook the sauce once the pasta is ready and drained. Cooking the pasta should be the last thing that you do.
