Penne Arrabbiata


I love love love simple recipes like this. Besides the salt and pepper there are five ingredients. Arrabiata means angry. And your significant other may get angry after smelling your breath with all of the garlic in this dish, but I always say, if both of you eat it, what's the difference? Kiss the cook! And watch out for how much dry chile flakes you use. That's what the "angry" is really about.
