Pasta dinners are easy to pull together, particularly if you use high-quality dried pasta as I did tonight. Rigatoni, with its robust and toothsome texture, stands up well to the other vegetarian ingredients that are included in this dish. Just a bit of bread and a small side salad complete the meal. For dessert, if you are so inclined, how about something light such as a cookie or two?
