Whole Wheat Penne Cheesy Pasta with Arrabbiata Sauce

Who doesnt like Pasta ? Its a kids delight especially.. While I prefer the white sauce, the husband the elder kid love it in Tomato sauce. This time, I made in homemade Arabbiata Sauce (recipe soon - my BM friends know why :D).

So if your family loves this dish, do give it a try. Goes with most breads. I served it with Onion Olive Focaccia. 

Prep time : 20 mins | Cooking time : 25 mins (For Pasta)

Ingredients: (Serves 3)
  • Whole wheat penne pasta – 150 gms
  • Arabbiata Sauce (recipe shall follow soon): ½ cup
  • Olive oil – 2 TBSP
  • Garlic minced – 1 TBSP
  • Salt – to taste
  • Grated Cheddar Cheese – ¼ cup
  • Basil – for garnish (optional)
  1. Boil pasta as per packet instructions and drain. Run a tsp of oil through the pasta to prevent it from sticking.
  2. In a pan, heat olive oil, sauté garlic till done, add arrabbiata sauce and drained boiled pasta. Check for salt and seasoning (Remember the sauce and cheese both contain salt)
  3. Mix it well, Let it cook for further 2 mins. Garnish with shredded basil and grated cheese and serve with Focaccia.
