Mohsin's Penne all'arrabiata

This is the only dish Shaheen will trust me to cook (so this is a one off) - my children love it.

Ingredients:

1 medium onion
4-5 cloves of garlic, 2 hot chillies
400g chopped plum tomato
Spoonful tomato puree
Oregano, Basil, Olive Oil
Penne Pasta, Lemon Juice
Salt, Parmesan cheese



Method


1. Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan.
2. Stir in the crushed garlic, chopped onions and chilled until Onions just start to yellow







3. Add chopped tomatoes, pinch of salt (remember parmesan cheese also has salt) and bring to simmer
4. Add oregano and basil to taste and a splash of lemon juice and allow to simmer on very low flame
5. Half fill a medium saucepan with water spoonful of olive oil (stops the pasta sticking together) and bring to the boil (cheat by using an electric kettle to give you a head start).
6. Cook the Penne pasta according to the packet instructions.
7. Drain the pasta and wash with water to wash starch away, and then stir it into the sauce.
8. Serve sprinkled with parmesan cheese to taste.

This and the garlic bread look delicious, I adore Italian food..thanks for your version. I too, make sauce at home, so much fresher that way.
