Lazy Cook Series: Penne Arrabiata

I decided to add something non-beauty related in here- the Lazy Cooks Series! One of my friends is learning how to cook so I thought this might be helpful! It's for you Gin! ehhe Here is one recipe that tastes delicious and it's so easy to cook: Penne Arrabiata (my version)

  • 1 packet of Penne pasta (500g)
  • 2 tblspn chopped garlic
  • diced onions (I used half an onion)
  • chopped chillies x 1
  • 1/2 capsicum, chopped
  • sliced pepperoni
  • 200g tomato paste
  • 250 canned chopped tomatoes
  • Basil ( I got mine in puree form)
  • hot chilli powder
  • parsley to garnish

Step 1: Boil a pot of water to cook penne pasta. Approx. 3 cups of water. Add salt for taste. Cook till al dente (soft but not soggy!) and drain the water. Set aside while you cook the sauce.

Step 2: In a frying pan, add oil, garlic, basil, onions, chillies and capsicum (in that order) and fry for one minute and then add the pepperoni. Fry for another 5 mins on medium heat.

Step 3: Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato paste and hot chilli powder and fry for another 1 minute to heat up the sauce.

Step 4: Pour sauce on pasta and sprinkle with parsley and eat while its hot!
