Now that winter has begun, and the temperature is dropping, I like to have hearty meal to make it through the cold.  This Whole Wheat Rigatoni with Potatoes is a great dish to share over the holiday with your Kwanzaa guests.  This recipe is a great one dish-meal, which will leave you feeling full but not overly stuffed.

For each of the other dishes I’ve featured for Kwanzaa, I’ve linked it with one of the seven principles of Kwanzaa.  This dish combines many different foods, and respresents all the principes, especially creativity, unity, and purpose.

Check out my other recipes that would be great for celebrating Kwanzaa: Cauliflower Fritters, Jerk Chicken, White Bean Puree, Doro We’t, Spiced Egg Salad and Roasted Eggplant and Plantains.
