Do you crave Italian or Mexican, the base is the same!

Spicy Arrabiata Penne and Huevo Rancheros

Tonight, I was in the mood for a simple fresh tomato pasta dish. I decided to make a basic tomato sauce that I can use with pasta for dinner and huevos rancheros for breakfast the next day. It is fresh and quick!  This was just for 2 peopel, so multiply it by the number of people you are feeding.

  • 1/2 pound penne
  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 1/4 cup olive oil 
  • ½ onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 4 large fresh tomatoes chopped
  • Chile Crunch to taste
  • Salt and pepper 
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning 
  • 6 leaves fresh basil, chopped, plus more for garnish
  • Parmigiano-Reggiano

Basic Tomato Sauce

In a large skillet, sauté the onion until translucent, then add the garlic until fragrant. Add the chopped tomatoes, Chile Crunch, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook about 5-10 minutes on medium heat until the tomatoes become juicy.

Take ½ the sauce and keep for the Huevos Rancheros

For the Penne, add ½ tsp. Italian seasoning to the remaining sauce. Add ½ lb (1/2 box) cooked penne pasta cooked in salted water until al dente and garnish with Parmesan Cheese and chopped basil. Add a little of the pasta water if it is too thick. 


Huevos Rancheros

In a little canola or vegetable oil, lightly fry 2 corn tortillas (not crispy). Place the tortillas on a plate, cover with 2 fried egg and top with the heated tomato sauce.  


Buen apetito!
