I’m such a fan of pasta dishes. Especially ones like this 5 ingredient rigatoni with eggplant and chorizo that tastes like summer in a bowl and is made in under 30 minutes.
Pasta dishes are great for when you need to get dinner on the table, quickly. I have never needed quick meals like I have this week, so this week’s Five Ingredient Friday recipe was especially needed and useful.
Summer is so hard, baby Ben is happily at being watched in home and by grandma, and will soon start up at daycare again. For those of you who don’t know, I have a full time job I enjoy very much, outside of this blog. I spend my days helping run a small natural products company called True Botanica (I use so many of our products: this lip balm is a favorite and all my friends are obsessed with it too, I take our multivitamins everyday, and our elderberry thyme syrup is a staple in my house all cold-season long!) I should really do a post on how I spend my days sometime, because I know many of you ask how I manage working full time, blogging, and having a family. Very carefully and very scheduled out is the short answer lol.
Wouldn’t you have a hard time leaving this precious little face? I mean gah, he’s just SO cute! (For those of you wondering, when he was a baby we got him this baby lounger thing called a dockatot and he loved spending the day in it!)
Ok, so back to the recipe! This one is a super simple 5 ingredient recipe that uses rigatoni pasta (you could use any type of pasta you’d like) and pairs it with eggplant and chorizo (which has a nice bite to it) and then is topped with fresh basil. So yummy and easy to make. The first time I made this dish I stood over the stove when the dish was done and was just eating forkful after forkful, right out of the pot lol.
If you’re looking for another great pasta recipe, this 5 ingredient healthy pasta has been getting really great feedback from readers! How was your week? I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
