Arrabbiata Sauce is easy enough for any weeknight, but special enough for Sunday supper. Spicy, sweet, and absolutely perfect.


  • 6 ounces hot italian sausage
  • 2 dried red chilis, minced (seeds removed for a less spicy sauce)
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups tomato sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese, optional
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves, packed
  • 1 teaspoon salt, more to taste
  • 1 pound fettuccine, cooked to al dente
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese


  1. In a large sauté pan, brown the sausage. Remove the browned sausage, leaving behind the oil. Cook the chilies and the onion in the oil until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Once the onion is cooked, add in the garlic and stir. Add in the tomato sauce and the diced tomatoes and reduce heat to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 30 minutes. Add the sausage back in, along with the ricotta, parsley, the basil, and the salt. Continue to cook for another 3-5 minutes until sausage is hot and the basil is wilted.
  3. Stir in the cooked pasta. Top with grated parmesan just before serving.
