“A red Italian sauce made extra spicy by adding hot peppers to the sauce. From WiseGeeks "Arrabbiata can loosely translate to “angry mood,” or in slang to the state of being “p o’ed.” It’s unlikely the sauce will accomplish this for anyone, and the name is inspired by its piquant taste. In other words, it’s an angry sauce that is likely to delight your taste buds." Recipe from my Feeling Saucy cookbook.”
