How to Make Budget arrabiata pasta
less than 30 mins
10 to 30 mins
- 100g/3½oz dried pasta
- 3 tbsp oil, ideally olive oil
- 4 garlic
- ¼–½ tsp dried chilli
- 400g tin chopped tomatoes
- salt and ground black pepper
- 25g/1oz cheddar
Half-fill a medium saucepan with water and cover with a lid. Place over a high heat and bring to the boil. Add the pasta and stir. Cook uncovered for 10–12 minutes, or until the pasta is tender but retains just a little ‘bite’. Stir occasionally as the pasta cooks, so it doesn’t stick.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the garlic and cook over a very low heat for 2 minutes, or until the garlic is softened but not browned, stirring regularly. Add the chilli flakes and cook for a few seconds more, stirring constantly.
Remove the pan from the heat and gently stir the tomatoes into the garlic-infused oil. Place the pan over a medium–high heat and bring to a simmer. Cook for 5–7 minutes, stirring regularly until the sauce is fairly thick and glossy. Season with a little salt and lots of pepper.
Drain the pasta in a colander or sieve, then add to the tomato sauce. Toss together and sprinkle with the cheese to serve.
