Arrabbiata Pasta ( Red Sauce Pasta )

Red sauce pasta is a popular variety among Indians after the cheesy white sauce pasta. Most people make a mistake or take a *shortcut* while making red sauce pasta. They use tomato ketchup which makes it worst. There is nothing like fresh tomato based #Arrabbiata sauce. Its very easy and you can make it at home.

Here is the recipe.

  • Take about 3-4 ripe tomatoes. Make four slight cut into the tomatoes from top and Place it into hot boiling water. Let it cook for about 5 mins.

  • Then cool it and take the peel off the tomatoes.

  • Blend it roughly in a blender.

  • In a pan heat some olive oil ( you can use regular sunflower or ground nut oil too ) I used Borges Extra Light Olive Oil

  • Add 1 tbs butter.

  • Into this add 3 tbs finely chopped garlic. This is very important.

  • Saute it for next 3-4 mins till becomes golden brown.

  • Now in the pan, add 1 medium sized onion finely chopped.

  • Let it cook on a medium flame till it becomes brown.

  • Now add finely chopped peppers ( Green and Red ) and half a tomato.

  • Now add the blended tomatoes into the pan.

  • Add salt and dry herbs. You may add some chili flakes too. I added Snappin Mixed Herbs and some leftover Domino's Oregano.

  • Cook this for another 5 mins. It will thicken and turn aromatic.

**This sauce can be used for Pasta as well as Pizza**

  • Now into the pan add boiled pasta. Cook for another 3-4 mins so that pasta takes up the flavour of the sauce.

  • Add a couple of tbs pasta water to adjust the consistency.

  • You may add veggies of your choice such as corn, bell peppers, broccoli etc. before adding the pasta to the sauce.

  • Serve it hot with a dash of cheese on top.

Here’s how to cook your pasta

  • In a deep pan, boil about 8 cups of water. Add 1tsp salt and 1 tsp oil.

  • Into this add the readymade pasta.

  • Let it cook for 3-4 mins.

  • It should become al dente ( half cooked) ** Do not overcook this**

  • Drain off the water. Add half a tsp oil and mix well.
