Another reality, this sauce is on factor and must be used on essentially e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. Really, you could simply make the sauce and boil up a few noodles and phone it an afternoon, or dinner, motive it’s that appropriate (or maybe that’s all the time you’ve got), however perhaps you need extra substance and that’s in which this baked rigatoni comes into play motive there’s the plain cheese you notice thankfully melted anywhere, however there’s also a few sausage hanging out in there too. This is substance at it’s exceptional my friend.
