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.

Although this was a tasty dish, I really felt like it needed more flavor, and some sauce. The pasta was a little dry. Next time I make this, I think I will save some of the bacon drippings, and make a light cream sauce to toss it in so it won't be so dry. It was a nice simple recipe, and you could add a lot of different things to it to make it even better.
