Food Snob Arrabiata sauce tomato sauce Arrabbiata sauce, or sugo all'arrabbiata in Italian, is a spicy sauce for pasta made for pasta. "Arrabbiata" means "angry" in Italian, and the name of the sauce is due to the heat of the chili peppers. 1 small yellow Spanish onion thinly sliced 6 cloves of garlic minced 1 large can of crushed tomatoes / you can use a can of peeled tomatoes that you blend. Try to use a brand that does not add basil in the can. We will add fresh basil in the recipe. I find that if you cook the basil to long in the sauce it makes the sauce taste bitter. ½ a teaspoon Italian seasoning 4 tablespoon virgin Olive Oil 1 tablespoon Food Snob Harissa 20 leafs of fresh basil cut in Julienne (thin slices) Salt & Pepper In a saucepan heat 2 tablespoon of Olive oil until hot, add the sliced onion, season with salt and pepper and sauté until it has caramelized. Add the can of tomatoes and lower the heat almost all the way. Add the garlic and the Italian seasoning, let cook until the sauce becomes hot. It is important to avoid boiling the sauce because the tomato will burn and turn bitter. Add 2 remaining tablespoons of Olive oil, Harissa and basil and check if the sauce needs more Salt. Mussels withFood Snob Harissa Arrabiata sauce. For this recipe I prefer PEI mussels but any type of mussel can be used. In a large pot drop mussels that have been rinsed, with a little water and some salt. We use a little water, ½ a cup or more depending on how many mussels you are cooking to help steam the mussels. For 10lbs of mussels you would only use 1 ½ cups of water. Take the mussels off the heat as soon as they have opened, this will take around ten minutes depending on the amount of mussels you cook. I suggest keeping an eye on the pot during that process, it is important not to over cook the mussels they would lose their tenderness when we reheat them in the Arrabiata sauce. Extract the mussels from the pot and strain the water that is found on the bottom. This water is very important for our sauce. I use coffee filters or a piece of natural hand roll paper to strain the water. Mix this water into the Arrabiata sauce, 1-part mussel water to 3-part Arrabiata sauce ratio. Ounce the sauce is hot but not boiling drop the mussels in reheat for a few minutes and serve on top of your favorite pasta or toasted country bread. Food Snob Harissa roasted chicken or lamb. 1 Whole chicken, or use 8 butchered drumsticks and thighs or lamb roast 1-1½ teaspoons Food Snob Harissa 2 teaspoons paprika 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning 2 tablespoon pure olive oil. Salt & pepper to taste In a large bowl mix all ingredients together carefully rubbing mixture evenly over the chicken. If you use a whole chicken, rub mixture inside the body cavity. Let the chicken rest at room temperature for one hour before roasting. During that time pre-heat the oven to 425F degrees. Roast chicken until internal temperature reaches 165F degrees in the thickest part of the dark meat. Let the chicken rest ten minutes before serving, this allows the juices to evenly redistribute throughout the meat. For the lamb, rub mixture on lamb let seat at room temperature for 15 min and roast at 350F until lamb reaches 145F. Let the meat rest 1/10 of the cooking time before carving so the jus redistribute evenly.
