Everyday Food Rigatoni with Chunky Vegetable Sauce

Pasta is a stable in our house. My boys and I could pretty much be happy eating pasta dishes every night of the week. However, my husband enjoys meat dishes and gets bored with the same vegetarian pasta dishes. I have been trying to incorporate one vegetarian dish a week into my family's diet without the recipes being monotonous.  Recently, Martha Stewart Everyday Food had a recipe for rigatoni with chunky vegetable sauce, which looked quick and delicious.

This is a very easy pasta recipe. The recipe states the total time as 30 minutes, but most of it is waiting for the pasta to cook. The ingredients were easily found at my local grocery store and the prep is minimal. I followed the recipe as stated, with no modifications.

My two boys of course liked this dish, it was pasta after all. I like that this recipe is very easy to prepare on a busy weeknight and takes little prep time. Make sure to adequately salt the pasta water, or the dish will be undersalted. This is a pretty basic recipe, and would work well for picky eaters.

For the recipe go to Everday Food Rigatoni with Chunky Vegetable Sauce.
