Spicy Arrabbiata Sauce

This classic spicy marinara sauce is probably our favourite sauce in our house. It’s made with all of the ingredients we all know and love in a really good, traditional Italian dish. It’s so simple and fresh, perfect sauce served on it’s own with pasta, with my favourite meatless balls, or as your pizza base for some extra zing.

Arrabbiata is a spicy tomato marinara sauce that originates from Rome, Italy.  In Italian, arrabbiata translates to mean “angry” sauce, thanks to all of those spicy chilli peppers. 

The super-authentic version is traditionally made with just olive oil, garlic, tomatoes and dried red chilli peppers. I like to add in basil and onion, you can use either fresh red chilli or red chilli flakes, the great thing about this sauce is that is packs a punch, it is full of good stuff and the ingredients are probably already sat waiting for you in your kitchen. Feel Free to add in a few handful of Spinach for extra goodness, with a side of garlicky broccoli.
