This one has it all… Veggies. Pasta. My favorites: Tomatoes & Cream. The husband’s favorite: MEAT!
The recipe I’m sharing with you today has a special place in my heart for a couple of reasons. First, this dish is big on flavor and leftovers but low on cost. The husband even thanked me for picking such a cost-effective meal (can you tell I have a tendency towards fancy cheeses yet?). Definitely a keeper for those reasons alone. Secondly, on a very personal note, this recipe was inspired by a dear friend of my family, Linda, who worked with my dad for most of my life, and many of my early memories, including “Take Your Daughter To Work Day,” include her hugs, laughter, and fiery personality. Two years ago, Linda passed away after a battle with cancer, but even as she was still fighting and weak, she came to our wedding and passed along several of her family recipes, which I cherish making because of her generosity, as a beautiful way to remember her with each meal.
From Linda’s Sausage Rigatoni recipe I made some changes to fit my cravings, and what came out was a fantastic, fairly quick week-night meal for a crowd. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do, and as you enjoy, remember to give thanks for the people in your life who have given you love and joy.
