"I grew up sharing a kitchen with my Italian-American grandmother, and we loved exploring new recipes for traditional pastas. My namesake Stuffed Rigatoni and Tomato Meat Sauce is an homage to my childhood and a new take on baked ziti with Ricotta and Romano cheese stuffed rigatoni topped with delicious Mozzarella and Parmesan."
