Rigatoni with Spiced Meat Sauce

The latest issue of Everyday Food had a lot of great recipes, including this one for Rigatoni with Spiced Meat Sauce.

The recipe is really easy and took a little less than 30 minutes to put together, including making the salad. I used beef instead of lamb because we have so much in the freezer and it was fantastic.

I loved the spiciness from the cayenne and the kick from the vinegar. And the cinnamon added a nice flavor in the background. For the salad I thinly sliced some red onion and mushrooms and tossed them with baby arugula:

Simply dressed with red wine vinegar and oil, this was a fantastic weeknight meal.
Pin It!


  1. This is really similar to greek meatsauce, which we just had last night :) I also add some allspice or cloves. Mmm. Looks great.

  2. This looks and sounds delicious!

  3. I just received my copy in the mail - I love that you are pointing out all the good recipes to me! Now I don't have to do any guess work!
