Penne all’Arrabbiata {recipe}

This entry is part 7 of 31 in the series My Italian Kitchen


We decided to evacuate from our house in light of the hurricane’s intensity. We packed up a few things and headed to Ocklawaha with two dogs. Michael was out of town but flying in. We got a head start and got down there in time to help Karen clear off the patio furniture.

After that was all done we had happy hour.hurricane matthew happy hour

And then it was time for dinner. I volunteered to make pasta. This is another simple variation, this time with the addition of crushed red pepper.

  1. I am just loving this whole series! I want to make every single one of them…or I can just come to your house and eat my weight in pasta 🙂

  2. I am so hungry! Almost my lunch break but I don’t want what I packed for lunch, I want this! With a hearty heap of freshly grated Parmesan. Mmm. So, I shared that we aren’t big on tomatoes at my house, but am I correct in assuming that after cooking the can of diced tomatoes for a few minutes, they will turn to sauce? Bear with me, I was at the end of the line when they were doling out common sense. I do cook, although you probably can’t tell from my questions. This looks so good. Can you hear my tummy growling????
