Homemade Arabiatta Sauce

Hope you’re all having a great Sunday!

Today, was pasta day for my hubby and me. We had a late breakfast and didn’t really feel like cooking something complicated for lunch so I just whipped up my famous (not so famous yet lol) Arabiatta Sauce. I found this recipe on Pinterest about a year ago, but made a few changes to it since it wasn’t spicy enough for me (we LOVE spicy). So, hope you enjoy it as much as we do!


  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 4 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Onion ( you can omit it if you want, but since it’s winter and flu season we need all the extra vitamins we can get to not get sick)
  • 1 Can of Dice Tomatoes (approx. 28 Oz)
  • 1 Can of Tomato Paste (6 Oz)
  • Chili Flakes (as much as you want, we love spicy so we use at least 4 Tbsp, but original recipe uses 1 Tbsp)
  • 1 Tbsp Oregano, dried
  • 2 Tbsp Basil, dried
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Fresh Basil Leaves (optional)


  1. In a large saucepan, heat olive oil. Add garlic and onion and cook until translucent.
  2. Add diced tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano, salt and pepper. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add chili flakes, basil and sugar. Stir well and simmer for additional 5 minutes. Taste and add more chili flakes if you want it more spicy. Top with fresh basil leaves (optional).
  4. Enjoy with pasta of your choice!
