Penne Pasta With Arrabbiata Sauce

Pasta Arrabbiata,  also known as Angry sauce!  If you like spicy food you will love this old Italian dish, if you don't like spicy food you will be angry about it!

Please note:  The parsley is missing in the photo!  I forgot it!!

First, get the pasta water going.

Recipe for four:
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 small red bell pepper, chopped
2 c cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 t each fresh rosemary, thyme and oregano finely chopped
1 t chili flakes
1 c parsley, chopped
1 T honey
3 T tomato paste
Juice of one lemon
1 c white wine
1/2 chicken stock
Salt and pepper
Parmesan cheese
Olive oil

Put a good amount of olive oil in a saute pan, and place over medium high heat.  When the oil is hot add the onions and peppers, and cook until almost soft.  Now add the wine and lemon juice and reduce half, then add the stock and do the same.  Now add all the ingredients, stir and lower the heat.  Season with salt and pepper and taste.

Drain the pasta and return it to the same pot, and stir with some more olive oil, now add the sauce.

Plate onto warm plates, add cheese and parsley...

Bon Appetit!  Chef Hobbes
