Taganu DAragona ---------------------------------

INGREDIENTS -------------------------1 and 1/2 pound of Rigatoni 18 eggs, beaten 1 and 1/2 pounds of Tuma cheese, sliced 3 cups of Romano cheese, grated 1/8 tsp of cinnamon 1 cup of chicken broth, hot 2 cups of red gravy, recipe below or you can use jar sauce since there is a minimal amount used in the recipe. Enough slices of Italian bread or white bread to cover the bottom, sides, and top of a large clay pot. A lot of Italian flat leaf parsley, chopped. Probably around 1 and 1/2 cups. 10 meatballs, smashed, recipe below 1/4 cup of vegetable oil Salt and pepper to taste PREPARATION -----------------------------In a large pot, cook the pasta in around 6 quarts of boiling salted water until al dente. In a large glass baking dish beat together the eggs, Romano cheese, parsley and cinnamon. I used a Kitchen Aid to mix these ingredients then I poured the mixture into the baking dish. Rub the oil all over the inside of a large clay pot. Dip both sides of the bread into the egg mixture and line the bottom and sides of a the pot. Place a layer of Rigatoni on the bottom of the pot, cover with a few spoonfuls of

egg mixture, then place a layer of Tuma cheese on top. Place a layer of meatball mixture over that and spread a little red sauce on top. Repeat the layering process until the pot is filled to the top while seasoning each layer with a little salt and pepper. Dip the remaining slices of bread in the egg mixture and cover the top. With the back of a wooden spoon, place a hole down the middle of the pot and pour in the warm chicken broth. Bake uncovered in a 350 degree oven for about 2 to 3 hours until all the liquid is absorbed but not completely dry. Insert a large knife to test if its done. If the knife comes out wet cook a little longer. Slice and eat warm or refrigerate and eat cold.
