Chimichurri Rigatoni Recipe

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
  • cilantro
  • garlic
  • 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
  1. With a non stick saute pan, add a little bit of olive oil and turn on the stove to medium heat.
  2. Saute cooked chicken sausage until brown about 5 minutes. U can use any kind of meat u prefer.
  3. Add a bunch of spinach and cook until wilted. You can use any veggies you prefer. I happen to have spinach in the fridge.
  4. Add cooked rigatoni. Mix
  5. Add chimichurri sauce and mix until it's incorporated in the pasta about 1 minute.
  6. Turn off heat and serve. I served it with a side of fresh mozarella cheese.
