Arrabbiata / Arrabiata Pasta is one dish which was staying in mind for quite a long time. This pasta has a tomato base but few more herbs and a little extra spice makes it really tasty and kind of addictive.
Stir Fry Spaghetti
Grilled Chicken Pasta
Spaghetti Aglio Olio
Chicken & Veggie Pasta
The sauce for this pasta is really spicy and flavourful with lots of garlic, onions, basil and italian herbs. You can make a bunch of this sauce and keep it fridge for more than a week.
