Rigatoni Al Forno

"oh the weather out side is frightful", "but the food coming from our kitchen is delightful" What a great way to escape from the brutal winter-a little Italian comfort food. Rigatoni Al Forno can actually be made with any pasta noodle, we happen to think tubes or smaller noodles work best, but use what you have or prefer. The dish is simple to make and is great spin on a basic pasta dish.

1 lb pasta
1 can tomato sauce 15 oz
1 can tomato paste
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 onion diced
2 garlic clove
1 1/2 cup mozarella cheese

for sauce:
heat sauce pan with oil
add onion and saute on medium
add garlic and saute 5 minutes(careful not to burn)
pour in sauce and paste
add in salt and pepper to taste
stir well, and simmer for an hour
boil noodles
drain and transfer to a oven safe baking dish
toss in sauce and coat evenly
add cheese in a layer on top of the pasta
bake at 300 for 30 minutes
for an even crispier effect, place under the broiler for a few minutes on high
