Spicy Chicken Arrabbiata Capellini

Rated as 3 out of 5 Stars

"In Southern Italy, the fiery red chili pepper is a staple in local cuisine. Arrabbiata, the Italian word for ‘angry,' is used to describe the spicy sauce of the region loaded with the beloved red chili pepper. Our ‘angry' pasta and chicken dish earns its heat from chili pepper flakes, perfectly balanced with fresh cloves of garlic, smoky bacon and a hint of lemon."
