Make a delicious dinner in minutes with easy pasta topped with a super-simple sauce with a kick.
- Tricks for easy pasta: Use salt in the water when boiling because dry pasta is not seasoned. Boil dry for less time than the box directions. Finish the pasta off in the sauce.
- Arrabiata is a great, spicy base to make other sauces. By adding capers, peppers and tuna you can make a simple puttanesca sauce, or adding some mushrooms and olives makes an easy cacciatore. Add a touch of cream for a great, easy pink sauce.
