Kitchen Confessions: Creamy Sausage Rigatoni

Happy Monday friends! We had the best weekend - we cheered on our favorite soccer star, caught up on house projects, and celebrated Carrie Beth's birthday. It was a good one. Daylight savings though has rocked my world. As always it has taken me by surprise and has me all thrown off.

Can we not do away with this mean little trick? It's voting week...can we add "Do away with Daylight Savings" to the ballot? I mean, if a candidate made that as their platform they've got my vote. I have a feeling all the parents will be behind the movement.

We wrapped up the weekend with a yummy Sunday night dinner. Sunday nights tend to be our only calm dinner night of the week. Typically it's the only night of the week the whole family is home, so we try to at least attempt to sit down to a good meal. At an actual table.

I've share this dinner on Instagram before, so if you've seen it there, I apologize. But I feel it's just too good not to show it a little more Internet love.

This Creamy Sausage Rigatoni is delicious! It's quick and easy to make - my main requirements for dinner when I'm in charge.  And it's a meal the whole family enjoys. That alone qualifies it for meal of the year.
