Step 1

boil rigatoni for only 7 minutes, so it's still firm, then rinse in cold water immediately

Step 2

stand rigatoni noodles upright in 9 inch springform pan to fill it completely

Step 3

cook the ground beef and onion (and other spaghetti sauce veggies if desired), adding tomatoes, herbs and sauce to simmer 15 minutes

Step 4

blend the sauce to a puree then pour over noodles to fill them with sauce

Step 5

bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees, then remove, add cheese and return for 10 minutes (broil at the end if you need to)

Step 6

Remove edge of springform pan and slice your cake for dinner!


So fun for the kids!
Might be better without meat and veggies to make the sauce smoother and easier to get to the bottom of the rigatoni noodles...
