Wow! This is an excellent sauce. I am so glad that we picked this one last night for our anniversary dinner to go over the homemade pasta ("pici") we were making. Excellent flavor and perfect amount of heat. I used fresh roma tomatoes from my garden ( 3 to 3.5 lbs) and I de-seeded 3 of the 5 chili peppers because I also added 1 lb hot Italian sausage to Step #4 with the pancetta. The result was amazing. Our pici took awhile to make, so I am quite certain that the arrabiata sauce simmered much longer than 45 mins (probably an hour and a half). We served this with Bev's Grilled Panzanella Salad, which complimented nicely and a strong red wine (Nobile di Montepulciano) we picked up in Italy last year. Thanks for making our first anniversary special. We will definitely make this sauce again. We loved it!

Simply put this is the BEST. I found it perfect but Hot. Will double the amounts next time and jar in Masons to keep on the ready.
