Chimichurri Rigatoni. Have you ever had it before? What about Chimichurri? If you've had Chimichurri then this dish may sound odd. But I promise it's delicious. Chimichurri is a sauce originally from Argentina. It's usually made with parsley, coriander, garlic, vinegar and olive oil. I see it mostly used as a marinade for meats or dipping sauce for breads, but never in pasta. I tried it last week and it came it pretty delicious.
Quick recipe... I don't measure the ingredients. Sorry.
- a bunch of parsley
- olive oil
- red wine vinegar
- lime juice
- chili flakes
- salt and pepper
Blend all of the above in a food processor. I used my mini Ninja Blender. Set aside.
- homemade chimichurri sauce
- cooked rigatoni pasta
- a bunch of spinach
- cubed cooked chicken sausage
- chopped yellow onion
- With a non stick saute pan, add a little bit of olive oil and turn on the stove to medium heat.
- Saute cooked chicken sausage until brown about 5 minutes. U can use any kind of meat u prefer.
- Add a bunch of spinach and cook until wilted. You can use any veggies you prefer. I happen to have spinach in the fridge.
- Add cooked rigatoni. Mix
- Add chimichurri sauce and mix until it's incorporated in the pasta about 1 minute.
- Turn off heat and serve. I served it with a side of fresh mozarella cheese.
Hope you try it out!
