Pasta Arrabbiata with Carrot Noodles

Pasta Arrabbiata with Carrot Noodles

And the boiled carrot noodles are back!

Remember when I told you how much I love boiled carrot noodles? I love them so much, I made a video about it!

Well, if you weren’t a believer of the coodle before, when you top them with this spicy tomato sauce, you’ll become a belieber. Err, believer. #yesijustmadeajustinbeiberreference

Pasta Arrabbiata with Carrot Noodles

Ha, making jokes and it’s only Tuesday!

This is another recipe that Tuttorosso Tomatoes asked me to inspiralize! I decreased the amount of olive oil and of course, I replaced the “regular” spaghetti with carrot noodles!  You can find their original recipe here.

It’s a simple sauce that freezes and reheats well, as do the carrot noodles. If you’re looking for a quick weeknight “gourmet Italian” pasta night, make this recipe.

Plus, it’s versatile – add some grilled chicken, some ground turkey, some chickpeas, or load up on extra veggies (fresh spring asparagus would be great for texture here!)

You can also find this recipe here, on the Tuttorosso Tomatoes website.

On a separate note, make sure you come back tomorrow as I celebrate my birthday and with that, giveaway everything Inspiralized – a signed copy of the cookbook, an Inspiralizer and an Inspiralized t-shirt!

Can’t wait to celebrate with all of you. On Sunday, the celebration began with a brunch at Marc Forgione’s restaurant in TriBeCa. They brought us a family-style menu, since it was a party of eight and let me tell you: we were stuffed beyond belief, everything was so delicious, we all couldn’t stop eating – stuffed brioche french toast, perfectly fluffy eggs with bacon, pork sliders, buckwheat pancakes, and the most epic home fries.

I was too busy laughing and eating to take any pictures! That restaurant gets me every time.

Have you ever made pasta arrabiata before?

  1. I LOVE carrot noodles so much. I did a post about making macaroni dishes with them last week on my blog! They really are one of my faves. This Arrabiata recipe sounds delightful as well! I don’t know if I can get that brand of tomato in the UK, but I’m sure it will still be delicious! Can’t WAIT to make this!

  2. Yum! I’m now craving all the Italian food!

    Hi Ali

    Just one question…..I’m puzzled about the tomatoes puree. I’m thinking it’s one of those lost in translation things. In the UK puree is the stuff you get in a squeezy tube or a dinky little tin. But I’m thinking that yours is more little passata that we tend to get in 500g tetra packs?

    Thanks for the inspiration :-)

  4. Hi, Love the idea of being able to freeze the carrot noodles. Do you freeze after boiling or before? Just love your recipes.

  5. I can’t even tell you how much I love eating different veggies now, and with carrots and spicy sauce?? Yum!!

  6. Loved the sauce but super hard to find “fat” carrots to spiralize. I’m on a mission to find the carrots since they are one of my favorite veggies!

  7. I just bought the book yesterday’s have a spiralizer but not the same one on the site as it has only 3 blades not 4. I am now really excited about the Inspiralized site and can’t wait to make the carrot noodles with the arrabbiata sauce. Just saw the post that the puree in the UK is Passata so good to know. Thanks.

  8. I made this last night and it was divine! I’d never used Tuttorosso Tomatoes before — wow, what a difference! This was the best sauce I’ve ever made. In fact, I may never purchase sauce from a jar again. The sweet carrot noodles & the spicy sauce balanced each other beautifully. I added fajita-cut red onion, green pepper, and andouille sausage. I’ll definitely make this again. Thanks, Ali!

  9. I’m guessing I already know the answer, but would like confirmation as well as suggestions, so here goes…
    I have shopped everywhere locally, and can’t find any spiralizable-size carrots. So, could I use carrot “rice” with the same results?
