1) Bring a large pot of salted water (it should taste like the sea!) to a robust boil.
2) Transfer fall salad mix to a serving bowl.
3) Pick the mint from the stem, wash, and gently pat dry. Stack leaves and thinly slice, creating a chiffonade.
4) Using a microplane or the smallest side of a grater, zest the orange and set aside.
5) Carefully slice the top and bottom off of the orange. Stand the orange upright and following the curve, carefully cut away the peel and white pith from the sides. Then you can either carefully cut into segments between the membranes or slice into beautiful rounds!
Chef’s Tip: Watch Ethan prepare the orange segments in the QR code link!
6) Add oranges, a handful of pistachios, and a sprinkling of parmesan to the salad. Just before serving, toss with desired amount of dressing and season with salt and pepper.
7) Add rigatoni to boiling water. This is a fresh, artisanal pasta so it will cook in about 3-4 minutes. Boil the pasta until it is cooked al dente (a slight chewy bite in the middle) then strain water and transfer back into the pot. Pour in desired amount of Bolognese along with the orange zest. Stir carefully and cook a few more minutes to meld the flavors.
8) Transfer to a serving dish or serve directly from the pot and garnish with the mint and a generous amount of parmesan!
