Spaghetti in Arabiata Sauce

Ingredients to make Spaghetti in Arabiata Sauce

  • 150 grams of spaghetti pasta or pasta of your choice
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1-2 onions, chopped
  • 2 red chillies, , seeded and sliced thinly (I used dried red chili)
  • 10 ripe tomatoes, finely chopped
  • salt, pepper & dried oregano to garnish
  • few parmesan shavings

How to make Spaghetti in Arabiata Sauce

  1. Boil pasta as per instructions on the packet or till al dente stage.
  2. Heat oil in a pan, fry the onions along with chillies. If you are using dry chillies, very lightly crush them & split them in the centre as it allows the flavour to be released in the oil.
  3. I fried chillies first & quickly remove them once they start sputtering and keep aside using a small straining spoon as leaving them in the oil makes them black & unappealing.
  4. Once onions are fried, add tomatoes and just a pinch of sugar. Sugar is added to neutralise the acid in tomato. Heat on high flame.
  5. When tomatoes break down & start to ooze liquid, add whole chillies in them so they will release their flavour while cooking. Allow to cook on low flame for another 5-8 mins.
  6. Keep stirring in between if required. It should attain a saucy consistency. If thick, then add little of pasta water to get the right consistency.
  7. Once done, divide the sauce in 2 parts – to one part, add macroni, salt, pepper & oregano and to the 2nd part add spaghetti, salt, pepper & oregano.
  8. Garnish with parsley & parmesan. Serve hot with bread of your choice.
