"Arrabbiatta" means angry in Italian. This simple, complex peasant style sauce stays true to is "angry" name. It's packed with heat and spice. The nice part is that you can either spice it up for your heat seeking family or spice it down for less adventurous spice eaters. My family is somewhere in the middle so I made a moderately spicy version this quick pasta sauce.
28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup pepperoncini (whole or chopped)
2 Tablespoons tomato paste
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon anchovy paste
1/2 teaspoon paprika
salt and pepper
1/4 cup grated Peccorino Romano cheese
Parmesan cheese (for sprinkling)
1 pound penne
Remove pepperoncini and stir in Pecorino.
Cook penne according to package directions.
