ARRABBIATA 

Syn Free Spicy Tomato Sauce! so yummy and perfect for pasta and a great base for pasta bake.

Arrabbiata which means angry in Italian as its spicy and fiery! 

 Here's my recipe, it makes about 5 portions - 
what you'll need -
* 500g carton passata * 
400g tin of good quality Italian chopped tomatoes
* 2 chopped red chilli peppers or dried chilli flakes (use less if you dont want it too spicy) 
* Fresh chopped basil
* 1 chopped onion
* 3 cloves finely chopped garlic or 1 tsp lazy garlic.
* 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
* Half tsp dried Italian herbs
* Cracked black pepper
* 1 tbsp tomato purée 
In a pan, fry the onion, garlic and chilli together in fry light (or a tiny bit of olive oil which wouldn't make it totally syn free but not many syns once divided up into portions)
Once softened add in a few finely chopped basil leaves and stir, add in thebalsamic vinegar and let it sizzle, then add the tin of tomatoes and the passata, give it a stir and add some cracked black pepper, 1 tbsp tomato purée and half tsp dried Italian herbs. Cover loosely and let it simmer for upto an hour or until it has thickened up nicely. Can be frozen and makes a quick yummy pasta sauce for when you want it! Also great poured over chicken!
