Baked Rigatoni with Bolognese
I adapted this recipe from a coupon insert from King Soopers®. The original recipe is promoting specific Brand Names with full fat and sodium versions. After making my adjustments, I think you will agree that the final result is so good, you would never think it's a heart healthy recipe!
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef and onion for about 10 minutes, or until beef is no longer pink and onions are soft. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the marinara sauce and water. Lower heat and simmer until pasta is cooked and drained.
- Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to package directions without salt for al dente. Drain and stir into sauce. Pour pasta and sauce mixture into a 2-quart baking dish.
- In a bowl, mix together the ricotta cheese, oregano, and basil. Spoon tablespoons over the top of the pasta, tucking down so mostly covered. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
- Bake for 30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and golden brown.
