Baked Rigatoni

Easiest Baked Rigatoni! Al dente rigatoni pasta is tossed with a beefy pasta sauce, blanketed atop with plenty of rich cheese then it’s baked until melty and delicious!

A quick dinner perfect for busy days! This Italian inspired baked rigatoni is the ultimate comfort food after a long day.

It’s cheesy, beefy, generously coated in a vibrant tomato-y sauce, and full of tempting pasta carb-y goodness. Checks all the boxes for a simple yet incredibly tasty dinner.

Serve up a mostly homemade dish (we cheat with a jar of pasta sauce) that everyone can agree on. And honestly it’s so easy that it’s almost more of a guide than a recipe.

You’ll love that you get most of those crave-able lasagna flavors here without near the the amount hassle.

Serve it with a side salad or some steamed veggies to complete the simple dinner, and maybe garlic bread if you are in an extra comfort food mood.
