Kids loves pastas anytime, twice a week i have to make pastas at home else my daughter will kill me..Obviously its quite like a staple food for my kids, thats why for the fifth day of blogging marathon, am sharing their most favourite spaghetti all'arrabiata aka angry pasta,this dish is a must if am organising any party menu specially for my kids. Yes the name of the dish means 'angry pasta',because this dish will be bit hot as they are prepared with hot red peppers. Usually penne, the small ridged tubes like pastas cut diagonally at the ends are used in this dish. But for a change i prepared this dish with my kid's favourite spaghetti.
This hot pastas are usually served by the cheap eateries in Rome with more garlics and hot chillies for their punch. However some may add onions,fresh tomatoes while some recipes calls for tomato puree, tinned tomatoes and skip onions, i included both onion,fresh tomatoes and tinned tomatoes.Eventhough this dish is bit spicy, its always a hit among my kids.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#27.Sending to Flavors of Cuisines - Italian event guest hosted by me,event by Julie.
