Recession Recipe: Tomato Basil Rigatoni

Happy Tuesday, E. Biters! Today's dish is on the fancier/more complicated side for E. Bites - so don't be worried if you have a little trouble figuring it out the first time you watch or read. I made the recipe as easy to follow as possible, but there are a lot of movable pieces, so pay close attention and don't beat yourself up if it doesn't click right away.

An important note - my Tomato Basil Rigatoni is based on this recipe from Scott Conant, a very famous chef with much more credentials than yours truly. Just giving credit where credit is due!
