Penne Pasta with Arrabbiata sauce

We love Penne Pasta, mainly because of its cylindrical hollow shape, which retains sauce in it..The best sauce that goes with penne is arrabbiata. It is pretty simple to make and yet it tastes like something out of an Italian restaurant..So here is the recipe:

Ingredients :

  • 1 cup Penne Pasta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  • 2 cups tomato puree.
  • 2 finely chopped onions.
  • 3 or 4 garlic cloves., chopped finely.
  • 1 tablespoon italian seasonings ( I used oregano powder).
  • 2 tsps red chilly flakes.
  • 2 tsps freshly ground pepper.
  • 1 tablespoon crushed basil leaves.
  • 1 tablespoon parsley.
  • cilantro leaves to top.
  • 1 sliced bell pepper.
  • 1 sliced zuccini.
  • olives to sprinkle on top.
  • Salt to taste.
Method :

  • Cook pasta in 3 cups water with some salt and 1 tsp olive oil, for roughly 10 to 15 minutes. Set aside.
  •  For the sauce, heat olive oil in a pan. add chopped onions and garlic, and saute for 4-5 minutes.
  • Add pureed tomatoes, italian seasonings, chilly flakes, ground pepper, salt, basil leaves and simmer on low flame for around 7 minutes. By now the sauce would have thickened, and the aroma will surely fill your house.
  • Now for the interesting part of assembling - Take boiled pasta in a plate, ladle some sauce on top of it, and sprinkle olives, parsley and cilantro on top. Sprinkle some grated cheese as well if you wish.
  • Serve steaming hot!
