    This is a slightly sweet and savory pasta dish- got it from a friend's italian pasta cookbook. Lots of pretty colors, unusual but delicious taste!

      My husband and 3 year old really enjoyed this. It was very easy to make and took very little time. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I made a few changes to the recipe based on what I had on hand: I used spicy sausage, rigatoni, sundried tomatos in olive oil with italian herbs, and a bit extra fresh basil. Since I used spicy sausage instead of sweet, I left out the red pepper flakes and hot sauce. Once I combined all of the ingredients, I allowed the mixture to reduce for about 10-15 minutes so that the consistency would be thicker and coate the rigatoni better. Thanks for a great recipe!
