Baked arrabbiata pasta

Baked arrabbiata pasta recipe with video. Penne arrabbiata is a popular recipe and recently i tried the baked version of the pasta with arrabbiata sauce. Few weeks back when we went to Chennai,Varsha experimented this version of pasta and sent me the picture. She is a great fan of spicy food,but since Varun doesn't eat that much spicy food,i normally make don't make too spicy food. She wanted to do a guest post again for Jeyashri's kitchen but thank god,school reopened for her from today. Two days back i made this same baked pasta for her friends who came home and posted the picture in Jeyashri's kitchen Instagram too. Many of the readers messaged me and asked for the recipe.

  • Mix well.
  • Transfer this to the oven friendly bowl.

Baked pasta recipe
Notes:
  1. Veggies like zucchini,sweet corn can also be added.
  2. Always use fresh red chili for a spicy version of arrabbiata sauce.
  3. You can replace red chili flakes in this recipe if you don't get this red chili in your place. 
  4. Instead of cheese you can top this with sliced tomatoes or roundels of zucchini too and can make a healthy version of baked pasta.
