Rigatoni with Breadcrumbs, Rosemary, Garlic, and Parmigiano Reggiano

An effortless meals you can throw together from this and that lurking around your cabinets. Rigatoni, simply boiled until al dente. A crumbly topping of breadcrumbs, almonds, garlic, rosemary, and Parmesan, toasted until nutty and Tuscan tasting. And the world's simplest sauce: pasta water "monté au beurre." Just add the pasta water with a bit of cold butter whipped into it. Together, they make a light, milky sauce that adds just enough moisture, but lets the crumb topping be the crowning glory. Comforting on its own, or great as a side with roast chicken.
