Plain ol’ pasta doesn’t have to be plain at all
I really don’t know what to call this dish. After all, it *is* simply rigatoni with sauce and cheese.
Then again, for whatever reason, turning all the noodles upright after cooking and then baking them this way made this dish way more fun….both to make and eat.
It didn’t take very long, but it did take longer than I thought it would. I figured I could do more than one noodle at a time, laying them in bulk, but not a chance. Each one had to be stacked individually.
Doesn’t it look cool when they’re ready, though? And then comes the sauce and cheese. And then more sauce, ‘cause hey, why not?
And then hey, why not some more cheese to melt on top of that?
Yum. Now the tricky part was actually serving it. You see, with all that sauce, the pasta couldn’t exactly stick together, could it?
Notice it going everywhere? (Oh, and those cheese biscuits in the lower left? Also really, really good)
Yeah…. So it might’ve been a little messy….
But it still looked cool in the pan and tasted so much better than just “plain ol’ pasta.”
