Tagliatelle Arrabiata

This is classic example of how sometimes less is more! There are less than 10 ingredients in this pasta recipe and yet it is one of my top favourites. Once you know how to make a classic arrabiata sauce it doesn’t matter what pasta you use, it will make it taste amazing!

This recipe is on the spicier side of things, but the amount of chilli you use is totally in your hands! In my recipe I have incorporated a moderate amount, making it suitable for most people. However, feel free to add less or more depending on your taste! All of the ingredients are super simple, you probably already have them in your fridge and pantry so you can definitely give this one a go! Are you ready? Let’s go get to cooking!!!
