Rigatoni Primavera – Easy Pasta Dinner

There are a few things you need to know:

  • There are only 4 days left to enter the draw for a set of Jittery Cook grocery bags.
  • The only thing you have to do to enter is subscribe to recipe 2 recipe, or get a friend to subscribe. If your friend subscribes and you let me know, you’ll both be entered in the draw. There is an even better reason to subscribe: You’ll make my day.
  • I’m always looking for great recipes for both Jittery Cook and recipe 2 recipe. Ever since Sonia wrote the post Sweet Pepper Tomato Sauce, I’ve been trolling for guest bloggers. Step up to the plate. Volunteer. You’ll be amazed at how much pleasure it will bring you. Recipe 2 recipe wants you!

Now that we got that out of the way, supper last night was a 1-2-3 affair. In no time at all, you can take advantage of Emmy Cook’s advice, making basil oil as instructed, then follow Emmy’s advice to toss it on some pasta. The result will be fresh and interesting. Each bite will have a unique flavour due to the large size of  each ingredient. Ain’t cooking grand?
