Baked Rigatoni with Sun Dried Tomatoes & Peas is simple, comforting, and full of flavor.
I haven’t cooked dinner in nearly two weeks. That is mostly because I’ve been too lazy to go grocery shopping. Actually, that’s the only reason.
This pasta was really good. Better than I expected it to be. Isn’t it nice when that happens?
I don’t typically like jarred alfredo sauces, and I don’t remember buying this one, but it was very good. This dish was inspired by one I used to get from either Johnny Carino’s or Papa Vino’s, I don’t remember which. It was pasta with peas, tomatoes, bacon and grilled chicken. Since we’re not eating meat, I skipped the bacon and chicken and switched up the roma tomatoes to sun dried tomatoes. It comes together really quickly and was a great weeknight meal. I served it with a little salad.
Oh yea…my cookbook/gift card GIVEAWAY is still going on.
*I used a jar of sun dried tomato packed in olive oil, which was around $7. My grocery store also sells “fresh” sun dried tomatoes, which are cheaper, but they’re too tangy for me. The ones packed in oil are milder, so that’s what I used.
