My sister's Greek friend baked this casserole for the family when our Mother passed away. I have shared this recipe with friends and have prepared it at church for many bereavement luncheons.

Directions

  1. Boil rigatoni 10 minutes.
  2. Drain.
  3. Mix milk and whip cream together.
  4. Set aside 1 cup.
  5. In the same pan that you cooked the rigatoni pour in milk and whip cram mixture. Add salt and butter. Cook until the butter melts.
  6. Add rigatoni and cook slowly until the mixture gets thick.
  7. Spread half of mixture in greased 9 x 13 pan.
  8. Sprinkle with ½ cup parmesan.
  9. Add remaining rigatoni.
  10. Add remaining parmesan.
  11. Pour the one cup of milk and whip cream on top.
  12. DO NOT STIR.
  13. Bake 350 for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  14. I like to bake until top gets a little brown.

This was a very easy and somewhat tasty dish. It was very rich like an Alfredo. I did make few changes such as using only 1/2 cup of butter, adding a little garlic, and mozzarella. I think with a bit more sauce, some cubed chicken, and broccoli or peas this would make a very nice casserole. (4)

This pasta casserole is very flavorful and rich! I will definitely be making this again, but next time I will only add 1/2 cup butter. I think that will be plenty. I thought the 1 cup of butter made the dish too greasy. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Oh! This sounds very tasty, almost like a Pastitio without meat. I will be trying this soon, and will rate it then :-) thank you Joanne!
