If there's a group you want to please beyond words, make this dish. It is not without effort, but you and your guests will feel like you have eaten like kings. It's not the usual tomato rigatoni and it is quite rich, but it's one of those dishes you can have once in a while. I'm sure you could reduce the calories by using lower fat products, but I can't say what the end result would be. The recipe came from a friend (thanks Barbara) who used to be a member of a gourmet cooking group in Seattle. You be the judge! It was served with Romaine, Radocchio and Bibb Salad and rolls.
