Creamy Spicy Rigatoni with Italian Sausage

  • SERVES: 4
  • PREP: 10 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 20 minutes

An easy-peasy yet flavorful weeknight meal!

This kind of weather makes us want to cozy up with a warm bowl of comfort...ideally one that isn't a huge hassle to prepare. This easy pasta recipe is a riff on an Italian-American classic but with the brilliant swap out of gochujang chili paste instead of tomato sauce for a spicy kick. The best part? Chopping is optional! Plus it's ready in less than 30 minutes. What's not to love?

Lowkey Lavender Braiser

Don’t call us shallow but we love this low rider version of our original braiser in an eye-catching shade of lavender. Not only is it super versatile - use it for quick pasta dishes, soups, sauces, and so much more - but it also acts as a statement piece that will beautify any stovetop. Plus, the interior is coated in nonstick enamel to make cooking and cleanup even easier.
