Rigatoni Pasta with Flavorful Sausage RaguThe following pasta recipe is made by me for the first time and fortunately it came out quite well and was relished by all the family members. To get the best results, use rigatoni pasta. It's a complete meal and goes well with a glass of quality red wine. Sausage ragu is the highlight of this recipe. Making it correctly can add the required spark in this preparation. Although you can use the same sauce base with spaghetti too, making it with such type of pasta is highly recommended. Just before serving, you can also grate a generous amount of processed cheese on top. Try to use fresh local herbs and spices for aromatic flavor. Let's make this scrumptious pasta recipe in a few easy steps.
