Servings: 10

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 pound ground beef

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes

1 pound rigatoni pasta

1 cup parmesan, grated

1 cup mozzarella, shredded

Special Equipment

Springform pan


# Boil the rigatoni in salted boiling water until just underdone or al dente.

# Drain the pasta and place in a bowl with a little olive oil so the pasta doesn't stick together. Set aside.

# Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C.

# In a pan, heat the olive oil and add the ground beef.

# Break up and stir the beef until brown.

# Add in the garlic, salt, and pepper. Stir until combined.

# Add in the crushed tomatoes and simmer until thickened, about 20 minutes.

# Sprinkle the prepared pasta with the parmesan cheese and mix.

# In a springform pan, place the rigatoni noodles standing up to fill the pan.

# Pour the sauce over the noodles and bake at 400°F/200°C for 15 minutes.

# Sprinkle the pie with the mozzarella cheese and bake for another 15 minutes at the same temperature.

# Slice and serve!
