We’re all a little cranky these days because it’s winter, it gets dark early, and we’ve been dealing with the virus for so long. This is when I crave a big bowl of stew or a pan of cheesy baked pasta. Fortunately, with my Baked Rigatoni with Lamb Ragù, I don’t have to choose because it’s both!
First, I make a rich lamb stew by sautéing onions, carrots, and fennel, then add ground lamb, tomatoes, garlic, and simmer it with almost a whole bottle of earthy red wine. Then I cook some rigatoni, drain it, and add it to the lamb stew plus lots of fresh mozzarella, some eggs and cream, and finish it with grated Parmesan cheese. The whole dish goes into the oven and the house starts to smell amazing, and all of a sudden, I feel so much better! Hope this makes you feel better too!
