Arrabiata sauce

(originally made 8/18/09)

I have been in a cooking rut for a long, long time.   I've busted out of it here and there, but I spent a good amount of time this morning making a menu and then shopping.   First up, this simple and delicious sauce shared by Twinkle!   It will definitely be a repeater at our house, thank you  :)
