Recipe Recommendation: Chicken Rigatoni and Cheesy Bread Sticks (Pioneer Woman)

December 31, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

So today is New Year’s Eve, and it’s cold and rainy outside. On the downside: It’s cold and rainy. On the upside: My neighbors can’t party all night and keep my dog up whining about the fireworks.

As the new year and resolutions start tomorrow, I decided to try out one last recipe before I go on the wagon food-wise. So here ya go, Chicken Rigatoni and Garlic Cheese Bread sticks from Ree Drummond’s show on Food Network called The Pioneer Woman. Photos below:

Fresh Mozzarella makes the difference, big time.

What I liked about the recipe is that the sauce ended up really thick. I think it’s because the chicken broth was reduced with the onion and was a thicker base for the crushed tomatoes. Overall, very tasty and I’m definitely keeping the sauce in my file for other marinara-based recipes.

Have a Happy and safe New Year everyone and I’ll see you again in 2014 🙂
