Rigatoni with Four Meat Ragù

My husband’s favorite pasta dish is this one…half of what he loves about it is that every time we make it, we make it together. We open a bottle of wine, put on some music and start cooking! The four different meats; sausage, pancetta, ground beef and ground pork are cooked until very tender in a delicious tomato sauce. We have served this yummy pasta dish for many family and friend get-togethers…it’s always a huge hit. Continue reading
