  • 1 pound rigatoni pasta
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 4 1/2 cups homemade or store-bought marinara sauce
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta until it is barely al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain the pasta, transfer to a baking sheet and toss it with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Grease a 9-inch springform pan with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Using your hands, stand each tube of rigatoni up in the pan in a single layer covering the entire base of the pan. 
  • Pour the marinara sauce on top of the rigatoni then transfer the pan onto a foil-lined baking sheet. 
  • Top the marinara sauce with the shredded mozzarella and Parmesan then cover the pan with foil.
  • Bake the rigatoni pie for 30 minutes then remove the foil on top and bake it another 15 to 20 minutes until the cheese is golden brown. 
  • Remove the pan from the oven and let the rigatoni pie cool for 10 minutes before releasing the sides of the pan and slicing and serving the pie.
