Arrabiata pasta is a traditional Italian dish with a spicy tomato sauce. It’s one of my favorite things to make when I’m craving something comforting and homey. This version has lots of garlic and red pepper flakes for that classic arrabiata flavor, but feel free to adjust the spices to match your taste!
- 4 oz extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tbsp red pepper flakes
- 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil leaves
- 3 lb fresh pasta
- 3 cups chicken stock
4 oz. extra-virgin olive oil
- Olive oil is a key ingredient in this recipe, as it gives the pasta sauce its rich and creamy texture. Olive oil is also a healthy fat that can help lower cholesterol levels and protect against heart disease, so you should use it whenever possible! However, olive oil has a low smoke point (the temperature at which it begins to break down) compared with other cooking oils like canola or peanut oil; this means that if you cook with too much heat or for too long, your food will taste burned because the olive oil has become rancid.
- If you’re using extra virgin olive oil (which I recommend), then it’s worth spending more money on brands like Colavita or Lucini Italia because they have higher quality ingredients than regular supermarket brands do–and trust me: Your mouth will thank me later when they don’t taste like charcoal after all your hard work!
2 tsp. red pepper flakes
In this recipe, we’ll be using red pepper flakes. Red pepper flakes are a spice that gives pasta arrabiata its signature kick. The name “arrabiata” means angry in Italian, and it’s easy to see why: this spicy sauce is the perfect way to get some heat into your meal! It has become popular all over the world for its unique taste and bold flavors–and now you can make it yourself at home!

1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil leaves (stems removed)
- You can buy basil in a jar or tube.
- You can buy basil fresh from the grocery store.
- You can grow your own basil in your garden, or even on a windowsill if you’re lucky enough to have one that gets good light!
- Basil is also available in bulk at many food co-ops and farmers markets, which makes it easy to get exactly what you need for this recipe–and nothing more!
3 lb. fresh pasta
Pasta is a staple of Italian cooking, and it is made from flour and eggs. It’s a good source of protein, so it’s important to cook pasta al dente (meaning “al dente” means cooked until tender). Pasta should be cooked in salted water, which will help preserve its color and flavor by removing some of the saltiness.
3 cups chicken stock, warmed
Bring the stock to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until the pasta is al dente, 8-10 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in the remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, if using. Season with salt and pepper as needed
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
The final step is to season the pasta with salt and pepper. This is where you can get creative, depending on your taste buds. Some people like a lot of seasoning, while others prefer something milder. The most common way to season pasta is simply by shaking some sea salt onto a plate before adding the cooked noodles, then tossing them around so that each strand gets coated with seasoning (this also helps prevent clumping). Next, sprinkle freshly ground black pepper over top of everything–you’ll want about 1/4 teaspoon per serving if you’re using whole peppercorns or 1/2 teaspoon if using ground pepper flakes from a jar or tube–and toss again until everything looks evenly coated in spices!
Put everything in a large pot and cook until al dente.
- Add pasta to boiling water and cook until al dente.
- Drain pasta, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.
- Return the drained pasta back to its pot, add the sauce and chicken stock, then toss together until well combined. Simmer for 10 minutes or until heated through (you may need to add more liquid if it becomes too dry).
Whether you’re a fan of spicy food or not, this pasta dish is sure to please. The flavors are complex and addictive, making it perfect for any occasion. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
