“I love Italian foods, especially those easy to prepare and freezer store. I lost a rigatoni and sweet Italian sausage dish that I liked so decided to create one of my own. I added spices such as allspice I thought would blend well.”

Directions

  1. Chop vegetables fine and sauté in 1/4 cup olive oil until soft.
  2. Set aside.
  3. In a large skillet braise and break sausage into small pieces.
  4. Add olive oil if needed to prevent sticking.
  5. When thoroughly browned, add tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato-paste, vegetables, spices, bacon bits and one-cup water.
  6. Simmer for one hour, stirring occasionally.
  7. Add water as needed to maintain sauce consistency.
  8. To cook the rigatoni: Add 1/4 cup olive oil to twice the amount of unsalted boiling water necessary to cover the rigatoni.
  9. Cook rigatoni al dente according to package directions (about 8-10 minutes.) When rigatoni is al dente, drain, toss with sauce and place on large serving dish.
  10. You also can store in twelve GLAD 8 oz containers or six GLAD 16 oz containers for freezer storage.
  11. The aroma of the frozen servings is even more pleasing as they reheat in a microwave oven.
  12. A fresh tomato salad with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing completes the meal.
