Penne all'arrabbiata

Ingredients for 4 hungry people  


  1. Put on the stove 4L of water;
  2. Cut the onions and chili pepper finely together;
  3. Cut the bacon in little strips, circa 10 $\times$ 3 $\times$ 2 mm;
  4. Add half of the olive oil in a wok;
  5. Brown the bacon, then set it aside leaving the oil;
  6. Add the rest of the oil in to the wok, mixed with the spicy oil;
  7. When the oil mix is warm, put onions and chili pepper;
  8. Add the tomato sauce;
  9. When the water's boiling add the kosher salt, and throw the pasta in;
  10. A minute before the pasta is ready, drain it and add it to the sauce, adding the bacon as well.

Tip: it's better to undercook pasta by 1-2 minutes and let it finish cooking with the sauce, it will take more or less double the amount it would have taken in the water, e.g. if you drain it 2 mins early it will need to cook 4 minutes in the sauce.
