This is a deliciously sweet and spicy baked rigatoni recipe that I whipped up, and thought I'd share.

Rigatoni alla Puttanesca e Arrabbiata

Rating: 4.46 stars
A combination of Puttanesca and Arrabbiata sauces, plus a few added ingredients, this dish makes a great main course. It's also fun to experiment with this recipe. I used rigatoni, but any pasta would work well.

Rigatoni Pasta with Chorizo

Rating: 4.04 stars
This is a great, fast dinner that's perfect for a potluck or weeknight meal. You can substitute chicken for the sausage, or delete the sausage to make it vegetarian, and it would still taste great!

Our family has been cooking this rigatoni for 40 years. It is a great change from the Friday night pizza, as it contains all of your favorite pizza toppings. A simple salad is all you need to make a complete meal.

Chef John's Chicken Riggies

Rating: 4.8 stars
This results in a sauce that seems much richer than it actually is, and I think you'll love the subtle sweetness the wine imparts, which works wonderfully with the heat from the peppers.

Vodka Rigatoni

Rigatoni with a tomato cream sauce. Can be frozen.

Pasta all'Amatriciana

One of the secrets to perfect Italian pasta is to finish cooking the pasta in the sauce. If you master and understand this dish, you will understand the art of Italian pastas and pasta sauces which is all about putting very simple ingredients together in just the right way. Try using my Fresh Garden Tomato Sauce (see Notes).

Baked Feta Pasta with Vegetables

I've given the baked feta trend a spring/summer twist. Full of veggies like asparagus, zucchini, corn, and peppers, and baked until golden brown and delicious.

Creamy Rigatoni Florentine

Rating: 4.6 stars

Pan-roasted garlic adds heady savor to a rich and creamy basil-infused tomato sauce. Tender cubes of sauteed chicken and fresh, green spinach go for a quick simmer along with cooked rigatoni. Toss this marvelous meal with mozzarella cheese and serve.
