Rigatoni is artfully dressed in a spicy cream sauce with carrots, shallots, and peas for a pop of color. Serve garlic bread topped with parsley and paprika, if desired. This recipe is made in a Panasonic CIO and appears on an episode of the Dinner Spinner TV Show on The CW!

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). (If using a countertop induction oven, preheat to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).) Place garlic bread, cut-side up, on a baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bread is warmed through and lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes in the conventional oven and 5 minutes in the countertop induction oven.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add olive oil. Cook rigatoni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, about 13 minutes. Drain.

  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add ground beef, 1 1/2 tablespoons jerk seasoning, onion powder, salt, parsley flakes, and white pepper; stir in brown sugar. Cook and stir seasoned ground beef until browned and crumbly, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer seasoned ground beef to a plate.

  • Melt butter in the same skillet over medium heat. Add carrots, shallots, peas, and parsley; cook and stir until lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Mix carrot mixture, rigatoni, and ground beef together in a large bowl.

  • Whisk cream cheese, sour cream, hot sauce, 1 teaspoon jerk seasoning, and dried thyme together in a bowl until well blended; stir in rigatoni mixture. Top rigatoni mixture with a pinch of jerk seasoning. Scatter bean sprouts on top. Serve garlic bread on the side.

This was so good! I actually made a gluten free version. I used gluten free noodles and served it with gluten free French bread! The only thing I would do differently next time is cut the hot sauce by half. While delicious this would have been way to spicy for my child. Can always add more after! I didn't have jerk seasoning so I made my own. That may have also significantly changed the level of spicy I ended up with! For the sauce After cooking and draining the noodles I put the cream cheese sour cream and other sauce ingredients into the hot pan to melt. THEN added it into the meat/veggies. Making sure the sauce was smooth and keeping the form of the pretty veggies! Thank you for a great recipe! I'll be making it again! Read More

This was tasty! I did not use the bean sprouts b/c the store did not have any fresh so I just topped it with a little green onion (which was yummy!). The only thing that I will say for me anyways is that next time I will not add the carrot as I'm not a big fan and it didn't do anything for me. I do think other veggies could be added with success like maybe spinach or zucchini. Also taste and salt accordingly. I had to add more than called for. This would also be great subbing sausage for the ground beef though the ground beef was fine. All around this was good and I would make it again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Excellent pasta recipe! I wasn't too sure about the ground beef with a cream sauce but it was yummy. Next time I might flavor my beef differently or mix in some chorizo. Read More

I did not use the fresh parsley nor did I add the bean sprouts but otherwise made the recipe as written. The taste of the jerk seasoning really came through nicely. Though we enjoyed this dish my only disappointment was with just how thick the sauce came out. I will make this again but will maybe add a little cream or milk to liquefy the sauce the next time.
