Now that I am back to work I am looking for meals that can either be chucked in the slow cooker before I leave the house or are really easy to make once I am home. This Penne Arrabbiata is one of those dishes. It is maybe difficult to spell (had to check that I had the correct spelling every single time I typed it) but it tastes really good. If you want you could even add some chicken to it by browning some chunks first or you can leave it without if you are after a meat free meal.

Arrabbiata is a spicy pasta sauce which contains garlic, tomatoes and red chillies. It means ‘angry’ in Italian due to the spiciness of the chillis so depending on your tolerance to spice you can make it either ‘slightly annoyed’ to ‘full on raging’ with as little or as much chilli as you want.

If you are on the Slimming World diet then this recipe is Syn Free due to using Frylight. If you aren’t following the diet then feel free to use olive oil instead to fry the garlic and chilli.

Serve with a side salad and some garlic bread.  I love the Tesco Free From Garlic Baguette for a gluten and dairy free alternative.

 

Possible Variations:

Use meat or fish:  Try adding chicken, bacon, meatballs, some seafood or even some Quorn for added protein.

Make it milder/spicier: Add more chilli flakes if you like more spice.  Too hot for you? Then reduce the amount of chilli flakes to what you can handle.

Add some veg: You can add some extra veg such as mushrooms, onions, chopped peppers or anything you like.

Low Carb alternative:  Swap the pasta for butternut squash fusilli or squash spaghetti.
