Rigatoni with beef and mushroom ragu
We’re heading into comfort food season and I for one am stoked. Roasts! Pasta bakes! Stews! It’s all so good. An excuse to enjoy warm delicious things on top of or mixed into pasta is an excuse I will take.
This is my contribution to your fall comfort food lineup. A ragu is perfect for a weekend evening when there’s nothing on the agenda besides chores and catching up on your shows, because while it takes some time to cook down the beef, it will make your home smell so good. This version includes mushrooms, thyme, and my secret ingredient Worcestershire. Dress it up with cheese and hand-torn basil, and it’s game over.
