Pasta Arrabiata is so simple and delicious that I’m almost at a loss for words. The fruity from the tomatoes meets a subtle spiciness from chili. Sometimes you need dishes that are not only quick, but super quick to make and this recipe is definitely one of them. Cook pasta and prepare sauce in no time. Ready is the Italian classic!
Arrabiato actually means “angry,” but what does that have to do with our Italian pasta dish? Quite simply, if the cook uses too much chili, then it is quickly over with the harmonious dinner. Too much of the spicy pod and you start to sweat and impress not with an interesting conversation, but with a flushed face.
Therefore, here is my first tip: you should know well the chili that you use. Start with a small amount and slowly increase. For guests, it is better to let them season it than to use too much spiciness in the preparation.

The sauce is really simple to make and consists of tomato chunks, garlic, chili, a little salt and pepper. In the original Roman recipe, the garlic is only briefly pressed in the olive oil and then removed. In my version, I just leave it in the sauce. why? Simply because it tastes delicious. Onions, on the other hand, have no place in this recipe, as their flavor is too intense. I add a small amount of maple syrup to balance out the spiciness a bit. You can certainly argue here, however, I find that the original Italian tomatoes are a tad sweeter. However, you can definitely use the sweetness as an option. Instead of pecorino or parmesan, I use my homemade cashew parmesan.
If you’re in the mood for another Italian dish today, I recommend the following recipes:
- Pizza with ricotta and green asparagus
- Pizza Mozzarella
- Tomato Mozzarella (Caprese)
- Make vegan mozzarella yourself
- Pasta Alfredo
- Pasta alla Norma
- Pasta with arugula pesto
- Pasta with paprika sauce
Maybe you would like to offer an Italian dessert to go with it?
