A Pinch of This ... February 11, 2010

Until the day I die, I will never tire of eating pasta!! Made for LET'S P-A-R-T-Y December (09) Cooking Event, this was absolutely mouth-watering. As a matter of fact, DH just asked if we were having more tonight. The ingredients in my Baked Rigatoni are put together separately. NOT ANY MORE! This is so easy, so creamy, sooo cheesy. Baked up right on target in 30 minutes. Good thing, too, because DH was glued to the oven door. Need I say more? There goes MY recipe right out the back door. Thanks so much for sharing this really neat recipe.

Doubled this for a large group we were having over and several asked for the recipe! Tastes like lasagna without all the fuss! Couldn't find the small rigatoni, but the large pasta worked just as well. Thank you for a wonderful, quick meal!
