Penne Rigate with meat sauce is a one pot meal and one of my favourite dish to prepare. It is very simple dish but nutricious , healty and tasty. For meat sauce the main ingredients are tomato paste, minced chicken and italian seasoning along with cheese. Red chili flaxes are also used in sauce but if you are making for kids you can used black pepper instead of red chili. I always choose whole wheat penne rigate which is better than rice made one. Tomatoes are full of vitamin and minerals, cheese is good for bone health and chicken mince provides protein. A whole some goodness in one dish. Enjoy it warm and sprinkle extra cheese for better taste.
