Baked Pesto Artichoke Rigatoni

Baked Pesto Artichoke Rigatoni

Pasta is the perfect meal when you want to cook a big dinner that doesn't take a lot of ingredients yet still is tasty enough for the whole family to enjoy. It's easy to simply boil water, cook the pasta, and stir in some sauce. But sometimes you want to take your pasta game to the next level by adding a few extra ingredients. That's where the Healthy Baked Pesto Rigatoni recipe from Pinch of Yum came to me at just the right time of hunger. It was the time when you know you're going to be hungry soon, but not quite there yet. Plenty of time to make the perfect Pesto Rigatoni but with a Cucina & Amore twist.
