This is a delicious recipe! Tried it with a mix of two types of your sausages. One question: how much balsamic vinegar goes in? (Note that balsamic vinegar is omitted from the ingredient list.) Thanks!

Can this be made a day before the dinner party?

All of the recipe prep besides cooking the rigatoni could be done the day before a dinner party. We would recommend cooking the pasta and tossing it with the heated vegetable/sausage mixture the day of your party. Enjoy!

This was delicious! I added a little more garlic and balsamic vinegar, a squeeze or two of lemon juice, some fresh minced parsley and some pink salt. Topped with some finely shredded homemade vegan mozzarella cheese sent it over the top. It was such a hit, everyone wanted the recipe! Please keep these recipes coming!
