Simple, delicious, and full of my favorite things. You just can't go wrong with Caprese anything. The combination of basil, tomato, and fresh mozzarella is always a treat to the tastebuds.
1 lb rigatoni pasta
1 tsp kosher salt
1 TB olive oil
2 cups prego spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 ounces mozzarella
1 cup grape tomatoes
3-5 fresh basil leaves
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook pasta according to package in a large pot of water with salt. Once pasta is fully cooked, drain and drizzle with olive oil.
In a large pan warm spaghetti sauce over medium heat. One the sauce is heated, add in heavy cream and parmesan cheese. Simmer for 2-3 minutes. Once cheese is melted pour sauce over noodles.
Cut grape tomatoes in half and mozzarella in 1/2 inch cubes. Then combine the mozzarella (save about 1/4 cup) and tomatoes with the pasta. Pour into a 9x9 baking dish. Top with remaining cheese.
Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown.
Top with fresh basil.
