The theme of the 2019 Barilla Pasta World Championship is the Art of Pasta, and my friends @barillacanada asked me to think about what the art of pasta means to me. I think it is as simple as using fresh and seasonal ingredients that are available locally. It means cooking with mindfulness and awareness of the produce around you. I have created this rigatoni with roasted red pepper puree and mushrooms recipe to celebrate the #PastaWorldChampionship and with art in mind. Few ingredients but packed with flavours!
