Bravo Ristorante Italiano Rigatoni Alla Buttera

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 25 mins

This is a quick and easy weekday meal, and a tricky way to sneak peas into a kids diet! To spice this up bit, try using a tomato sauce like Barilla's Tomato and Basil and hot italian sausage. If you like pink sauce, you can also add more cream. Overall, this is a tasty, easy dish!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook sausage in a large frying pan, until well browned. Drain fat.
  2. Pour tomato sauce and broth on top of sausage and cook for 3 minutes on medium heat.
  3. Add peas and cream and cook for 1 1/2 minutes more.
  4. Fill a large saucepan 2/3 full with salted water. Bring to a boil.
  5. Add rigatoni. Bring water back to a boil and cook uncovered until rigatoni is al dente (tender but firm to the bite).
  6. Place a single serving of pasta on a plate, and top with as much sauce as you like!
  7. Serve immediately.
  8. Grated Parmigiano cheese may be added at table, if desired.

My boys (and I) loved this simple recipe. I used my own tomato sauce and this made a quick and easy supper. I added a little extra cream and served it over some tri-color noodles. Made for 1-2-3 Wonders.

I love how quick and simple this is to make on a busy night not to mention how delicious. I used hot Italian sausage which gave it a nice little bite. My family enjoyed this one a lot. Thanks for sharing!
