  • One Pot Spicy Pesto Cheese Baked Rigatoni. When you’re craving Italian, but also need something simple? Make this. It's perfect for this week leading up to Christmas...cause slowly the family is trickling in and I need recipes like this in my back pocket. Plus, it's my all my brothers favorite pasta. It's saucy, heavy on the pasta, a touch spicy, swirled with pesto and cheesy too. Nothing not to love. ... ... 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil 1 shallot, chopped 3/4 pound ground spicy Italian chicken sausage 4 cloves garlic, minced or grated 2 (28oz) cans crushed San Marzano tomatoes 1/2 cup vodka 3/4 cup basil pesto 2 tsp dried oregano 1 tsp dried rosemary kosher salt and black pepper 1 pound dry rigatoni pasta 2 cups shredded kale 2 cups shredded fontina cheese 8 ounces mozzarella, torn Cook the olive oil and shallots in a large pot over medium heat until fragrant. Add the sausage and brown all over. Stir in the garlic. Add the tomatoes, vodka, 1/2 cup pesto, oregano, rosemary, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Then add 2 1/2 cups water, the pasta, and kale. Increase the heat to medium-high. Bring to a boil. Stir frequently until the pasta is al dente, 8-10 minutes. If needed, transfer to a baking dish. Top with both cheeses. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese has melted and is lightly browned on top. ENJOY :) #recipevideo #pastabake
