Rigatoni Stuffed with Ham

The stuffing:
8 ounces ham
1 onion
2 slices of bread
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup romano cheese
1 teaspoon italian seasoning

1 pound rigatoni

1 jar tomato sauce

8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded.

Take the first six ingredients and grind them in a food processor

Boil the rigatoni until it is less than al dente. Drain it. Cool it. Put the stuffing in the rigatoni. This part is a pain in the ass but I watch TV while I do it and it seems to be soothing. It took me about 25 minutes to do it today.

Pour 1/3 of the sauce on the bottom of a 8 X 13 baking dish Put your little stuffed rigatoni in the dish until you get a layer. Pour 1/3 of the sauce. Top with 1/2 the shredded cheese. Repeat the rigatoni layering, saucing and cheesing.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes until it is all bubbly and yummy. It is supposed to make eight servings but yohboh really loves this and it lasts two days.

So while I was in Southeast Asia, I had mangosteens. Those I liked. They are like if a sweet melon and a peach had a baby. YUM!

Also I had a pink dragon fruit. DELICIOUS!

We ate durian in Singapore. Durian tastes like if rotten coleslaw was made into a warm egg custard.


Yohboh loved it.
