Penne Arrabiata

Dolloping some chutney on a cracker with a hunk of cheese is all well and good, but we love using our range in recipes as well, injecting a delicious depth of flavour into our favourite dishes.  Our Spicy Tomato relish is a particularly versatile condiment to use in cooking and this pasta is perfect with a few spoonfuls stirred in. A delicious and simple winter warmer!
