'Arrabbiata' means 'angry' in Italian, and this pasta dish has this name due to the spicy dried chilli in it. Our version of this classic Italian dish has a rich tomato sauce, with herbs and the all-important red chilli flakes. You can adapt the heat to suit your taste – use a little more or less depending on how 'angry' you like it!

One of my favourite meat free dishes, the spice heat is easy to alter to suit. Decided to make into a pasta bake, topped with a little grated cheese 😋
Made into a pasta bake

Simple, tasty, full family winner
We omitted the chilli so children could enjoy and added it at the table. Really simple basic idea. Easy to add in extra veg or meat from the fridge. Not necessary! And actually even tastier the next day cold. Weve been using it for lunches as well!
Quick, easy and filling.
I added some extra mushroom to the recipe and also used chilli and garlic chopped tomatoes and chilli puree for extra spicy’ness. I added a small amount of 50% reduced fat chedder to the top of the dish after cooking.
