Here I am, still in Italy and ready to share another simple and popular Italian dish (one more in my category dedicated to Italian Recipes).

Arrabbiata means “angry” in Italian, an adjective that describes the Italian temper rather well :). Well, at least a side of it.

The politically correct way to explain this dish is saying that “arrabbiata” term refers to the abundant addition of chilli to the sauce that thus becomes heated and piccante. The name comes from the fact that by eating this spicy dish you are likely to become red as a chilli pepper, just like when you are very angry. […]
