Irresistible Penne Arrabiata with a slightly fiery note! This Pasta Arrabiata Recipe is super easy and quick to prepare and makes a perfect dinner served in no time!
Cook the penne according to the packet instructions until al dente. Drain, toss with some olive oil if desired, and set aside.
Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick pot over medium-low heat. Add the minced garlic and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes until fragrant. Don’t let it burn.
Stir in the diced tomatoes and tomato paste and let it simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Season with sugar, salt, and cracked black pepper.
Add the drained pasta to the sauce and toss for one minute allowing the penne to soak up the sauce.
Serve with fresh basil and vegan parmesan cheese.
- Add some pasta water if the sauce gets too thick.
- How long does it stay fresh? Stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, it keeps fresh for 3-4 days.
- Can I use a different type of pasta? Yes, of course. It also tastes delicious with rigatoni, rotini, or pipette.
