    1 lb rigatoni pasta
    1 tsp salt
    1 TB olive oil
    2 cups spaghetti sauce
    1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
    1/2 cup heavy cream OR half-and-half
    6 ounces mozzarella
    1 cup grape tomatoes
    3-5 fresh basil leaves


    Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

    Cook pasta according to package in a large pot of water with salt. Once pasta is fully cooked, drain and drizzle with olive oil.

    In a large pan warm spaghetti sauce over medium heat. One the sauce is heated, add in heavy cream and parmesan cheese. Simmer for 2-3 minutes. Once cheese is melted pour sauce over noodles.

    Cut grape tomatoes in half and mozzarella in 1/2 inch cubes. Then combine the mozzarella (save about 1/4 cup) and tomatoes with the pasta
    Tear the fresh basil leaves into small pieces and stir into pasta mix.

    Pour into a 9x9 baking dish. Top with remaining cheese.

    Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown.


    I had four chicken sausages that I sliced up and added to the pasta dish before putting it into the oven - tasted really good. Next time I may try adding some chicken pieces chopped into cubes!!
