Baked Tortiglioni in Chili-Beef Sauce
-Dasmariñas Village, Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines-
with the Family
Tortiglioni is a type of pasta. Tubular, pinky-sized, with diagonal grooves on the outside – the name derives from the Latin “torquere (twist).” Essentially the same thing as rigatoni, which is vertically grooved.
A bit of beef chili, leftover from a chili dog application a few months back (see 10.255 Chili-Chorizo-Dog Deluxe), mixed with marinara sauce, it turned out like a light bolognese, vaguely Tex-Mex in flavor. First time we’ve had red meat in 11 days. The boys loved it.
