Rigatoni with Pizza Accents

Rigatoni with Pizza Accents

Our family has been cooking this rigatoni for 40 years. It is a great change from the Friday night pizza, as it contains all of your favorite pizza toppings. This is a heavy recipe. A simple salad is all you need to make a complete meal.

So glad I found this recipe. Had all the ingredients to make a pizza, and my oven broke! This is the next best thing. I used the diced tomatoes with basil and garlic, and added some dried oregano, basil and Italian seasoning. Topped the whole dish with a mix of grated parmesan and mozzarella. Thanks for saving supper!

This was pretty good, *definitely* a kid pleaser. The only thing we changed was after making the sauce and noodles, we mixed it all together and baked it in a lazagna pan with mozzarella and parmesan cheses on top. It adds about 15 minutes to the prep/cook time, but is well worth it. Not the healthiest dish in the world, but a great substitution for the friday night pizza!

This is good. I used mushrooms, olives, salami, and hot sausage - then added a little mozzerella and parmesan on top. Thanks for the recipe!
