Oh it's real fun.
Especially when you're very carefully carrying drippy red tomatoes that fell into the sink, to the trashcan and someone runs into you with their Hotwheels and you drop said tomatoes all over the new light-beige carpet.
Yep, that happened. UGH.
Needless to say, mommy was not a happy camper after that one! These smiles, though. I have to admit, they do make it worth while. :)

Sausage & Tomato Rigatoni
1 box rigatoni
1 lb mild italian sausage, ground
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup onion, diced
15 oz can stewed tomatoes
8 oz can tomato sauce
Cook rigatoni according to package directions. Meanwhile, brown sausage in a deep skillet. Once browned, add garlic and onions and saute for 3-4 minutes. Add stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, and one small can full of water. Heat to boiling and then reduce heat. Cover and simmer 10 minutes. Serve tomato sauce over rigatoni and topped with a handful of mozzarella and sprinkle of fresh chopped basil.
It's amazing to me how often I'm tempted to just order out for dinner when I can make something SO absolutely delicious at home in literally less time than delivery would take! I really loved this dish and so did my kids, the rigatoni is so fun for little ones to pick up on their own.
