Italian-Style Bacon Risoni Bake

Italian-Style Bacon Risoni Bake

with Parmesan

Delicate, rice-shaped risoni soaks up the rich red sauce beautifully in this crowd-pleasing pasta bake. Top with succulent garlic and herb-seasoned chicken thigh, plus a sprinkle of sharp Parmesan to bring it all together.

Unfortunately, this week’s chicken breast was in short supply, so we’ve replaced it with diced bacon. Don’t worry, the recipe will be just as delicious, just be sure to follow your recipe card!
