This Christmas Pasta recipe is perfect for the holidays because it feeds a large crowd.
WHAT IS CHRISTMAS PASTA?
This recipe, originally created by Rachael Ray, serves two purposes. It’s pretty as a Christmas Pasta because of the red sauce and the green parsley garnish. And it’s a nice recipe for the holidays because there are usually quite a few people around, and this recipe makes enough to serve twelve people.
If you don’t have twelve people hanging around at the same time, that’s okay! Make the sauce recipe, and then make half of the pasta (16-ounces). The flavor of the pasta sauce totally improves the longer it sits. So if you serve some up one day and then finish it up a couple days later, that’s a good thing! You can also freeze half of the sauce if you don’t want to eat it all within a week’s time.
HOW TO FREEZE THE SAUCE:
Store extra sauce for this Christmas Pasta it in a freezer-safe container. Try to use it up within a couple of months. When ready to use, let it defrost in your refrigerator overnight. Then cook up some pasta, and use up the rest of your sauce.
