Cheesy Rigatoni Cake
  • 1 box rigatoni, cooked al dente
  • 3 cups Rao's sauce
  • 1 package of string cheese, cut into pieces that fit into each noodles
  • olive oil
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella for the top
  • 1.2c. Parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat oven 400.
  2. Grease an 8 inch springform pan with olive oil (Next time I will also spray the sides well with Pam for easier release.)
  3. Place a piece of cheese inside each noodle.
  4. Stand up the rigatoni around and around in the pan until tight.
  5. Pour on the sauce. (I used less but next time will use all 3 cups.)
  6. Top with shredded mozzarella and some parmesan.
  7. Bake covered for 15 mins on a foil lined cookie sheet.
  8. Remove foil and bake an additional 15 mins or until browned on top.
  9. Let cool a bit before removing sides.
  10. Use a thin knife around the edge to help loosen the pasta.
