Reviews for Meaty Rigatoni Bake
"This was so simple. I was a bit skeptical of all the meat (especially the pepperoni) but it really was delicious. My kids and my husband liked it. Definetely a keeper. It reheated great and tasted even better the next day."
"Very tasty! Following lolohiser's suggestion, we left out the pepperoni. It wasn't needed. So good!!!"
"Simple and delicious. Would leave out the pepperoni - almost tastes like pizza but without the crust."
"Making this tonight. Looking forward to serving it!!"
"Simple, delicious recipe for a new to cooking couple. I used an extra 1/2 cup of uncooked rigatoni, and was very pleased with the result. Seemed it would have been very very sausage, sauce and pepperoni heavy. Can't wait to make it again!!"
