I love the simplicity of Italian cuisines. The real Italian foods consist of few ingredients. The cooking is not complicated. They rely on the freshness and the quality of the raw materials themselves to deliver good taste.
Pasta alla Arrabiata is my favorite’s. Arrabiata means angry in Italian. So, you bet, hot chillies are the primary ingredient of this menu. The traditional recipe involves no meat, but I love to spice it up with some bacons. Also, you can go for whole-wheat penne if you want.
- Penne (or any other type of pasta)
- some sliced bacons
- chopped tomatos, 1 cup
- a few pieces of hot chillies
- a glove of garlic, chopped
- olive oil, 2 table spoons
- grated parmesan cheese
- salt and pepper
- Bring salted water to boil. Add penne and cook until aldante. Remove from heat. Drain the cooked penne.
- Fry bacons on the pan and set aside. This step is optional.
- On the pan, medium heat, add olive oil and garlics, cook until golden brown. Add chopped tomato and continue cooking for a few minutes. Add salt and pepper. Add bacons if you have.
- Pour penne into the sauce. add parmesan cheese on top.
