More About This Recipe
  • The word “rigatoni” comes from the Italian word rigato, which means “ridged” or “lined,” and is often used to describe the pasta of southern and central Italy. In less than an hour, this rigatoni meal includes protein-rich beef and carbohydrate-loaded pasta for a hearty, filling dinner. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, beef provides important nutrients like zinc, iron, protein and vitamin B. For a leaner meat option, you can easily substitute ground turkey in its place. There’s nothing like a warm bowl of home-cooked pasta to welcome you home after a long day. Whether you’re carb-loading for a marathon or entertaining friends for a “Notte Italiano” dinner party, you can browse through all of our delicious baked baked pasta recipes.
