Three Cheese Italian Rigatoni Pie

It's easier to lay the pasta into the springform pan if you stand it up at an angle and LAY the pieces of rigatoni against the other pieces. I think about a 45 degree angle works best. Just lean it against a scrunched-up towel and start laying the pasta in it. The fuller it gets the easier it is and you can lay it down flat for the last couple of's not going to fall down the more packed it is!

  • 1 pound Rigatoni
  • 1 jar of your favourite pasta sauce (approximately 2.5 cups, give or take. If it's slightly more or less, just use it all)
  • ½ cup of water

  • 1 pound ground beef or ground pork
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
