This is a great casual dinner party dish garnished with freshly grated Pecorino cheese and chopped parsley. Arrabbiata literally means "angry" in Italian, a nod to the spicy kick in this dish.
Altered ingredient amounts. I have to agree with the other reviewers .. I wanted a spicy sauce but not one with stacks of ingredients. I used bacon and left out the mushrooms, olives, anchovies and capers! I know....I might as well submit a whole new recipe - 27 Feb 2009
Looks good, though I wouldn't use extra vergin oil. Extra vergin oil cannot withstand high (frying) temperatures, making it saturate. It's also a waste because you lose the taste anyway by frying. And further I'd like to know what wine is good with it. - 08 Jun 2009
I made this but left out alot of the ingredients (see my tweaks). Spice level was perfect. I think I'll submit a simplified version. - 27 Feb 2009
