Spicy Red Pasta Sauce

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by quirkycook

Known in Italian as arrabiata sauce, this is an amazing homemade red sauce. The ingredients are frugal but the end result is delicious. My fiance and I use this often when we are having friends over. Add some chicken sausage and fresh basil if you want to make it extra special.

Really nice! I love the garlic in this one, and felt that the spicyness was just right, and not overdone. Will be making this more often!
