Spiralli Pasta in my ever favorite Arabiatta Sauce

Earlier, before I started exploring the world of spices and sauces, days ago when I never knew that a yummy Italian dish could be created in our very own kitchen.
I would always always order this when I had a chance. After I knew how easy it was to make it at home, its always a different order at Italian Restaurants.
This is the most easiest sauces to make pasta in.


1 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
4 cloves garlic, minced
3/8 cup red wine
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups peeled and diced tomatoes ( after being blanched)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Blanch tomatoes in hot water.
Remove them and make them into a coarse paste
Heat oil in a large skillet or saucepan over medium heat.
Saute onion and garlic in oil for 5 minutes.
Stir in wine, sugar, basil, red pepper, tomato paste, Italian seasoning, black pepper and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer uncovered about 15 minutes.

Pour over cooked pasta and throw in some black olives.
Garnish with grated cheese to add to flavor.
