3 Lunch Ideas Part 2 : Cheesy Rigatoni

Another cooked rigatoni meal

You will come to find that many of my recipes are pasta based, this is because they are one of the simplest, easiest meal to cook at any given time. I have not tried a microwaved cooked pasta but when I do, I will share that recipe. At any given point at which you would like to prepare your favorite pasta dish, you are going to need 3 ingredients, your pasta, your sauce and whatever else you would like to add to this content mixture.

For this recipe


  • A block of cheese
  • 2 cups Your favorite brand of rigatoni pasta
  • Pasta sauce of tomatoes and mushroom or tomatoes and basil
  • 2 tbsp. of olive oil
  • 2 cups of water
  • Salt & Pepper to taste (based on preference)


  • Melt the cheese in the olive oil on medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add your pasta to simmer without any water
  • After 5 minutes add in your sauce
  • Cook on moderately high heat for 25 minutes. You can leave on heat if the meal has not cooked to satisfaction to continuously simmer.


  • This is a simple but filling meal.
  • It is a combination of carbohydrate, protein, and vegetables.
