How to prepare Alessandro Borghese’s penne all’arrabbiata?

Penne all'arrabbiata from Borghese

A classic first course prepared by a great chef is something else entirely: here are Borghese's penne all'arrabbiata.

How many times has it happened to us, on television, to see a simple dish prepared by the expert hands of a chef take on a completely different aspect, while maintaining the same starting ingredients? Borghese's penne all'arrabbiata are no exception. This time the secret is in cooking the cherry tomatoes , done in foil rather than in a pan, so as to give them a toasted aroma. For the rest the ingredients remain unchanged: excellent quality pasta , chilli pepper, garlic, oil and parsley .

Do you know why this quick and easy first course is called that? The reason is to be found precisely in the presence of chili pepper which is said to make the face red with its spiciness, just like when you get excited!
