Chef’s tips & techniques

  • Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until a quarter of the time is left. Strain the pasta immediately from the water and add to the simmering pan of sauce. Let the pasta finish cooking in the sauce so it can take on the flavours.
  • Slice the Pecorino in a creative way to add interest to the plate.
  • You can replace the anchovies with salted capers or black olives.
  • Nutritional tip: Did you know? Anchovies are a good source of B vitamins. A 100g serving of anchovy meat can also provide 19g of protein, 77g of calcium and 3mg of iron. 


How do I garnish Pasta Arrabiata in an authentic way?
You can garnish with dried chilli, basil leaves, shaved parmesan, sun-dried tomatoes or cherry tomatoes.
