We believe it was one of the Founding Fathers who said, "Give us a bowl of comfort pasta or give us death!" (It must be true; we read it on the Internet.) The stakes for dinner are not so dire, but there's no reason you shouldn't have this comfort pasta right here. Those tasty tubes of rigatoni, with a cheesy marinara sauce, plus those mushroom umami bombs. And wasn't it Ben Franklin who said everything's made better with Parmesan? The Internet wouldn't lie to us, would it?
