Rigatoni Bolognese

Rigatoni Bolognese

  • Ingredients for 2 portions
  • 90g Lizza Rigatoni pasta
  • 10g Olive oil
  • 45g onion, chopped
  • 6g garlic, minced
  • 50g mushrooms, chopped
  • 100g canned crushed or chopped tomatoes
  • 16g tomato paste
  • 1-2g or 1 tsp Italian dry herbs
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 10 fresh basil leaves
  • 5g grated Parmesan cheese

Preparation: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Instructions:

  1. Cook Lizza Rigatoni pasta as per the instructions on the packet.
  2. Meanwhile, in a pan, heat olive oil. Sauté onions until they are translucent. Add garlic and sauté for one more minute.
  3. Next, add and cook mushrooms over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Then add tomato paste and cook that for a minute. Add 2-3 tablespoons of pasta water to improve the consistency and deglaze the pan.
  4. Stir in the canned chopped tomatoes and heat to a gentle simmer. If you need to thin out the sauce with a bit more pasta water, do so.
  5. Season the sauce with salt, black pepper, and Italian dry herbs. Make sure to taste the sauce before adding salt, as the sauce already has salted pasta water.
  6. Stir in the cooked rigatoni. Cover and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  7. Sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and top with some fresh basil.
