Fusilli Arrabiata

Who doesn't love pasta? Its the favourite one pot meal in house too! This is a very easy recipe, and requires only a little bit of your time and effort. The kids love it too, and I usually make it a healthy dish  by using whole wheat pasta (you can use regular pasta as well). A regular dish for the school lunch box as well!
