PASTA – ELBOW RIGATE with Meatballs in Pasta Sauce

First of all, I would like to thank you for choosing this Recipe website, one of the finest in the world.

Before you begin, I would like you to prepare yourself a cup of coffee or tea, so that you may relax and read this most important document that will affect the rest of your life.

The photos you will see below are not just a bunch of pretty photos.

They are positioned in such a way to enable you to have a clear view of how to cook the best pasta in the world.

Since you will be the judge of the above statement, I have the utmost confidence that the moment you agree with it, this will be one more vote added to many already verifying the accuracy of the words: The best pasta in the world.

The ingredients needed are Mr. Goudas Elbow Rigate, Mr. Goudas Pasta Sauce, Mr. Goudas Trinidad Style Hot Sauce, Mr. Goudas Salt, Mr. Goudas Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Asiago, Parmesan or Romano Cheese.

I mentioned in the title that this recipe is for Pasta with Meatballs.
However, in this recipe I assume that you have already prepared your meatballs.

If you have not, there is a Meatball recipe on this site.


I would also want you to know that instead of meatballs you may use chicken, beef or any other meat you desire.

Alternately, should you be a Vegetarian, simply omit the meat.

The reality is that Mr. Goudas Pasta and Pasta Sauce make a delicious meal all on their own merit.

I would like to let you know that the meat would not make the pasta good.
It is the Pasta that makes the meat better.

On that note, we will begin to prepare Mr. Goudas Elbow Rigate with Meatballs in Pasta Sauce.

Place a pot filled with water on stove and bring to a boil. Lot of bubbles.

Boiling water

Add a small amount Extra Virgin Olive Oil and salt to taste.

Add sufficient Elbow Rigate for participants at the meal.

You now have nine minutes available.

Therefore, let us utilize this time.

Place a large frying pan on the stove and add some Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Cut your already prepared Meatballs into pieces, e.g. halves or quarters, and place in the frying pan.


Heat up the meatballs at medium level.


Now is the time to prepare your Pasta Sauce.

You need the following ingredients.

Oh, I forgot. What am I saying?

I hope you did purchase the correct Pasta Sauce.

In this case, this would solve all the problems in the world because the only thing you have to do is open the can and remove the lid.

Mr Goudas Pasta Sauce

Look, view and examine the rich, thick contents.
The beautiful colour and the aroma will definite the environment.

In fact, some people say that it is better than Classicato, Ragoon, Prinasalsa, or any other nameless brand.

Mr Goudas Pasta sauce

Pour the necessary amount, probably half of the can over the heated Meatballs (meat).

Add a tablespoon of Trinidad Style Hot Sauce which will enhance the flavour and give a very small amount of heat because this hot sauce is a flavour enhancer and is like nothing else in this world.

Stir a couple times with your spatula to blend the ingredients.

Now you have another minute available.

Turn your eyes to the pot of cooking Elbow Rigate and observe the way they are dancing like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

Taste one piece if you want to.

Make sure it is to your satisfaction.

The nine (9) minutes are up.

Empty the pasta into a strainer or colander.

Let the Elbows drain for a couple seconds since you do not need any water.

Pour the Elbows over the Meatballs and Pasta Sauce in the frying pan.

Stir a couple times very, very gently.

The aroma should be intense and your mouth begins to water anticipating the taste.

Should you hear the siren of an ambulance approaching your neighbour's house, placing him in a straight jacket to be taken away, it is because you drove him crazy with the aroma of your cooking.

Scoop a sufficient amount to a serving plate.

Look at it and maybe, if possible, take a memorable photo to share on Facebook and Twitter.

I hope you remembered to purchase some shredded Cheese.

I also hope that you purchase a well known brand of Cheese

If not, shred some yourself.


The reason I suggest that you shred your own cheese is because if you purchase shreded cheese over the counter there is a possibility of receiving a combination of several varieties of cheese, unknown brands and anything left over from names like Sapio, Bagiatiko, Vromiko and Pacifico.

shredded grated cheese

And generously sprinkle over your creation.

Now is the time to sample that delicious looking plate of Mr. Goudas Elbow Rigate.

You have to be careful because on the first bite you will be in for a shock as the label on the packaging states:
Your eyes will roll over in your head and you will find yourself saying:

Ooops! What are we thinking. This is in Chinese!
Could someone help us translate this?

Thank goodness for Juliana Tsang translated it into English and rewarded her with twenty thousand Malaguayan doolies and front row tickets to the Olympics there in 2148,

There are rumours that municipalities are discussing the possibility of implementing Pasta disposal bins or containers to help the general public dispose of any pasta stored in their homes.

Peter Spyros GoudasI hope you enjoy this dish as much as I do!

Thank you from all of us for taking the time to read and hopefully prepare this recipe.
