I love this style of pasta dish as it’s so simple to make. Rigatoni is a tube shaped pasta that varies in lengths. It comes from an Italian word which means ridged. It’s this ridge on the surface of the pasta that helps trap the sauce and flavours unlike smoother pastas. Usually more popular in Southern Italy. My version has chorizo and eggplant which marry so well. Smothered in a luscious tomato puree and topped with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, makes this a simple but taste meal.
