Cook the rigatoni
While the water heats and the rigatoni cooks, prepare the rest of the meal.
Prep and cook the onion and mushrooms
- Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [1½ cups].
- Finely chop the mushrooms.
Prep the “meatballs”
- Rinse the white beans.
- On a plate or shallow bowl, spread half the cornmeal in an even layer. Set aside the rest for the “meatball” mixture.
To the bowl with the white bean mixture, add the umami powder, tamari, and remaining cornmeal; season with salt and pepper and mix until just combined. Using wet hands, form the mixture into 1-inch balls. Roll the “meatballs” in the cornmeal, pressing lightly to coat all over.
Cook the “meatballs”
While the “meatballs” cook, prepare the basil and the marinara.
Prep the basil; finish the marinara
- Strip the basil leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.
- Measure the onion.
- Rinse and mash the beans.
- Shape the “meatballs” and roll in the cornmeal.
- Strip the basil leaves.
- Garnish with the basil.
