Penne Pasta in Arrabiata Sauce
There\'s nothing quite like a slightly spicy pasta sauce made with fresh Italian herbs


In a pot of boiling water, put all the tomatoes, for about 2 minutes, then take out and peel the skin off. Chop the tomatoes and set aside

In a heated pan with a splash of oil, add onion and fry it until the colour changes. Add the garlic and fry until soft then stir in the tomatoes before adding chilli pepper and seasoning to taste, cover and simmer for about half hour over low heat. While simmering, prepare the pasta either by steaming or boiling until al-dente. 

Add chopped, basil, parsley and oregano to the sauce and stir to let the herbs soak in. Spoon in the boiled pasta and top with parmesan cheese. Serve hot.
