    Meatless spaghetti sauce can be used in place of the marinara sauce.
  • tip 2
    Mostaccioli or bow tie pasta can be used in place of the rigatoni.
  • tip 3
    Cook the rigatoni for this recipe in advance. Drain well, then toss it with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Refrigerate it in a resealable food storage plastic bag for up to as day.
