Did you know that Pasta Arrabiata literally translates to "angry pasta" in Italian? That's because this tomato sauce is spicy. But between you and me, this vegan Pasta Arrabiata is great to come home to when you've had one of those angry and stressful days at work. Onions, garlic, and red chili peppers are sautéed until fragrant, crushed tomatoes are added to provide even more depth of flavor. Finally, we tossed cooked penne in the sauce until well-coated and topped with fresh parsley. Buon appetito!
