RECIPE A DAY | FUSILLI ARRABIATA

Tempers rise. Arms flail. Cuss words spew. Spoons fly across the kitchen. An apologetic embrace follows. The typical Italian ‘ill-tempered’ sojourn and the literal definition of the Arrabbiata sauce! Arrabbiata in Italian means ‘angry’, and if the piquant sauce hasn’t left you teary-eyed only to be made up by the sweetness of the tomatoes, then the sauce hasn’t been cooked right! A handful of seasonal vegetables and fussili done just right are tossed in a chunky tomato-concasse simmered in chilli oil. Finished with a glug of olive oil, torn basil and chilli flakes and served with a bread roll, our ‘angry pasta’ will pleasantly surprise you!
