Two sauces are better than one! I found this dish in a contemporary Roman restaurant, and thought that this is a perfect dish to develop a recipe around, because it’s fairly easy to prepare but yet sophisticated enough to impress your guests.
It is not a traditional Italian dish, but lies in the nouvelle cuisine of Rome, and will be a delicious addition to your pasta repertoire. I would recommend a good Falanghina wine for the perfect pairing with this pasta dish.
Rigatoni is a type of pasta, tubular in shape with vertical ridges that run lengthwise. It is usually used with meat sauces – think of ragù bolognese – and creamy sauces, and it can also be used for baked pasta dishes like baked ziti.
