Arrabiata Pasta Recipe / Arrabbiata Pasta Sauce Recipe

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.

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.
