Perfecting this quintessential Italian dish requires attention to detail; here are my tips and tricks:

  1. If you’re wondering how long to cook rigatoni, aim for approximately 12-14 minutes. The key is to test a piece for that perfect al dente texture, ensuring the pasta remains firm yet tender to the bite.Simmer the beef bolognese patiently to let the flavours meld.
  2. Grate parmesan just before serving for the freshest taste.
  3. Toast pangrattato until golden to add a delightful crunch.
