Riggies- I ALWAYS make these at the last minute!

Riggies is a pasta dish popular in central NY. It has a tomato-cream sauce that has a little spice to it (this is optional of course). It takes about 45-60 minutes to make, depending on you.

Directions!

  1. In a large sauce pan, melt butter on medium heat.
  2. Add peppers and cook for 4 minutes.
  3. Add onions and cook for 6 minutes.
  4. Add water, chicken stock, tomato sauce, heavy cream and spices. Bring to boil and simmer for 20 minutes Stir occasionally! If you do not have chicken stock or tomato sauce, see below for alternative options!
  5. While your sauce is simmering, cook pasta.
  6. In a small bowl, mix the flour with cold water until it is all dissolved and is a liquid. Pour this into the pot and stir until it becomes thicker.
  7. Stir in the grated cheese. Now would be a good time to season with salt and pepper, if you want.
  8. Add pasta to sauce.
  9. Keep on medium heat and cover with a lid. Cook for 4 minutes.
  10. Take off heat, let cool for a few minutes and serve!
