Tips  

Meatless spaghetti sauce can be used in place of the marinara sauce.

Mostaccioli or bow tie pasta can be used in place of the rigatoni.

Cook the rigatoni for this recipe in advance. Drain well, then toss it with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Refrigerate it in a resealable food storage plastic bag for up to as day.
