      I tried this recipe last week because my younger child loves baked rigatoni.
      I made some changes to the recipe. I did not use celery. Just with the tomato I found the recipe
      not red enough, so today I will be making this recipe again adding some tomato sauce.
      This recipe is a keeper and I love wine in my cooking.
      I hope this helps
