Stacked Pasta Pie and a Giveaway!

Wow your family and friends with this delicious and easy stacked pasta pie! Cheesy stacked pasta enrobed with a hearty meat sauce covered in more melty cheese. Serve like a slice of pie!I’m picky when it comes to what kind of sauce I serve with pasta. Having grown up in an Italian family, my grandmother made her famous red sauce, always simmering on the back of the stove. I looked forward to getting a chance to dipping  a piece of bread in the sauce to see if it was thick enough to serve for dinner. I have been making her sauce for years.

RAGÚ® Homestyle Thick and Hearty Meat Sauce is so flavorful and perfect just the way it is. Grandma would approve. It is a very thick sauce– you can tell by the way it hugs the pasta.You can taste the bold flavors in this sauce because Ragu peels, chops and simmers the ingredients and uses a special blend of herbs (basil, fennel, oregano and black pepper) to layer and build the flavor.

Ragu doesn’t use artificial flavors, artificial colors or high fructose corn syrup.

I don’t take short cuts when I make my Grandma’s sauce and neither does Ragu.  They take the time to make sure the sauce is made right.Pasta PieOnly 6 ingredients for this easy and delicious recipe: Ragu Homestyle Thick and Hearty Meat Sauce, Rigatoni, Olive Oil, Parmesan Cheese, Mozzarella Cheese. ( butter, not pictured)

Cook the rigatoni until it is al dente ( firm to the bite). Try this trick, place a wooden spoon on the pot so the water doesn’t boil over.

I cannot believe you made this with only 6 ingredients. I also know it is time consuming to put the noodles around the baking dish. I really like all the cheese on top.
