Smoky Pepper Rigatoni with Mascarpone, Basil & Balsamic
This dish is pasta like you've never had it. While many pasta dishes err on the Italian side, flavor-wise, this pasta has an entirely unique flavor profile of smoky paprika, sweet peppers, creamy mascarpone, and sweet-tart balsamic. We love rigatoni pasta for this dish because it holds its own against the creamy sauce and maintains that perfect al-dente snap when you bite into it. Smoky paprika isn’t normally paired with bright, fresh herbs, but this pasta is finished with a handful of fresh basil that perfectly contrasts the creamy, smoky sauce.
