Rigatoni with Sausage, Tomatoes + Basil

• 22 June 2010
























We are huge fans of pasta in this household...huge. Paired with a simple green salad and a crusty bread, it's the perfect meal. I've made this recipe twice in the past couple of weeks--that's how much we love it! In fact, my husband declared it the best pasta with red sauce I've ever made.

Today I'm sharing my recipe here...enjoy!

Yes I make that dish a lot too. Using Italian pork sausage, crumbled (or sometimes sliced) with tinned tomatos, some chilli pepper and basil. Perfection, I agree. xoxo

Yum! Will be adding this one to my list of new ones to try. Your pictures always look so tasty too. Another great pasta dish is this one http://www.williams-sonoma.com/recipe/baked-ziti.html. More of a cold weather dish, but very good none the less. I do put mine is a baking dish in the oven rather than the pan.

That reminds me of a sauce my mother makes from scratch with the italian sausage ... this looks wonderful. Duly copied and I do believe it's what's for supper tonight! =:"~D

I have rigatoni in the pantry, a huge basil plant at the ready.....I'm in....this is dinner tomorrow night! Thanks a million for the great idea! For the record, I think it would be awesome if someone with your good taste would team up with BustaMeal.....ever thought of it?

Trish, I have no idea what BustaMeal is...

Steph: bustameal is a web-based meal planning service. You enter in preferences and diet type and they will e=mail you weekly with a list of dinners, recipes and a grocery list. I love that the grocery list is in a format I can use on my iphone. Plus the recipes are on my phone so the kids can call out the directions while I cook! So cool. It has seriously changed my life. You can enter in your own recipes, too. I guess what I think it's missing is an editorial perspective, a personality you can relate to as a busy mom....I immediately thought of you. I'm just a customer, nothing to do with them other than use their service. Just goes to show, you can take the girl out of the PR firm, but.....:)

I made this for dinner tonight! It was scrumptious beyond believe. My family were bowled over. A smashing success and one I'll make again and again! Thanks once more for this culinary inspiration.

I have made this recipe many times (since you first posted it 6 years ago!), and really enjoyed it! It's been a while, so I searched for the recipe to add the ingredients to my grocery list, and it's no longer on the Cafe Zupas blog. Any chance you would mind sharing it again? I can vaguely remember, but I don't want to mess up the perfect ratios of the ingredients! Thank you!
