Chef Chuck's Stuffed Pasta

Rigatoni Conchiglie Ripiene

This stuffed pasta recipe, made with rigatoni would be a delicious appetizer or a main meal.  I stuffed these with a mixture of hot Italian sausage, garden fresh zucchini, onions, garlic and parmigiano cheese.  You could make these ahead of time and then bake when company arrives.
