Healthy Rigatoni Bake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Chef Doozer

I got this recipe from the book "Saving Dinner". My family just gobbled it up and my husband said the recipe was a keeper. They had no idea the oats were in there or other healthy things. :) It makes a great easy dinner and I've even served it to company.

I made this the other night for my husband and myself. I was very impressed with this recipe! I will most definitely make this again. Thank you for sharing!
