One Pan Rigatoni With Creamy Red Wine Tomato Sauce

One Pan Rigatoni With Creamy Red Wine Tomato Sauce

A weeknight dinner dream come true! A complete meal in one pan. This one pan rigatoni is filling, comforting and full of flavor.

One pan pasta, people. This method of cooking pasta is a game changer (I know I’m literally the last one to do this but I’ve never been one to jump on trends). I may never go back to the traditional way of cooking pasta in boiling water.

Spaghetti with meat sauce is always a go-to easy weeknight meal, but it makes so many dishes dirty! One for sauce, one for pasta, a colander to drain the pasta. And that’s without any side dishes. Say you roast some broccoli to go with it. That’s another dirty pan. The sink is starting to fill up with dirty dishes and all of a sudden your easy weeknight meal became kind of a pain in the you-kn0w-what.This pasta gets ONE PAN dirty. Only one! You can still roast that broccoli to go with it – but line the pan with foil and then you’ll still only be at one pan. Or don’t line the pan with foil and you’re still down at least two dirty dishes – no colander for the pasta and only one pan for the rest of the show.I use turkey Italian sausage in this recipe. It’s a nice switch up from plain ground turkey because it packs a lot of really great flavor into this one pan rigatoni before you even add any other ingredients. It also gives you some flexibility. We like to use sweet Italian sausage but if your family likes things a little spicier, get the spicy version of Italian sausage.


  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 19.5 ounces turkey Italian sausage, casing removed
  • 1 medium onion, diced (about 1/2 – 3/4 cup diced onion)
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced (about 1 cup diced red bell pepper)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 can (28oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 16 oz. pkg. pasta (I recommend Rigatoni)
  • 4 ounces reduced fat cream cheese
  • Fresh parsley or basil to garnish, optional
