My son-in-law’s birthday was last week and when asked what meal he’d like for the celebration, he requested one of his favorites – Baked Rigatoni.  I was very happy to hear this since not only is it delicious, it is also ridiculously simple.

I’m sure everyone can agree that any recipe that is a crowd pleaser but doesn’t take a lot of time to prepare, is a real winner!
