Rigatoni Supreme

Betty Graves


This recipe is so different from alot of pasta recipes that have a lot of tomato sauce. It has a wonderful taste because of the basil and nutmeg mixed in plus the sauce you make to add to it. It is defintely a comfort food.

How to Make Rigatoni Supreme


  1. Brown hamburger, green pepper and onion until done. Drain.
  2. Add your tomatoes, minced garlic and basil and simmer covered for 20 minutes or longer. While that is simmering boil your noodles and drain, set aside.
  3. In a saucepan melt your butter and stir in flour until consistency is like toothpaste. Gradually pour in your milk, stirring constantly using a whisk until it thickens. Remove from heat and stir in salt and a little pepper.
  4. In a medium casserole dish (9 x 13) or use what will fit the contents of the recipe. Place half of the pasta on the bottom, followed by half of the tomato sauce and then your sauce. (Make sure the sauce will be spreadable). Then layer 1 cup of mozzarella cheese to finish that layer. Do the second layer the same way ending with mozzarella cheese.
  5. Bake 350 degrees for 20 or longer. Make sure cheese has melted and it is cooked all the way through.
