Ingredients

  • 1 lb rigatoni
  • 1 Tbsp EVOO
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 10 oz stemmed/chopped greens
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 3 cups tomato sauce
  • 5 oz grated parmesan cheese
  • 8 oz smoked mozzarella, grated
  • 8 oz mozzarella

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large pot of salted boiling water, add the rigatoni and cook until al dente, about 6-7 minutes. Drain, rinse and set aside.
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, add the EVOO. Add onion and sauté 5 minutes. Add the garlic, greens and salt and cook another 5 minutes until the greens are wilted.
  4. When the pan is dry, add the white wine and cook until evaporated about 5 more minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. In a 9" x 13" casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray, spread 1 cup tomato sauce evenly over the bottom. Spread 1/2 the rigatoni over top followed by 1/3 of the parmesan and 1/3 of each of the smoked and regular mozzarella cheeses.
  6. Repeat twice more, replacing the greens mixture for the rigatoni in the top layer.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove and eat!
