Creamy Tomato and Spinach Pipe Rigate

AuthorKathleen GloverCategory, , DifficultyIntermediate

Creamy Tomato and Spinach Pipe Rigate comes together in half an hour and is glossy, cheesy, tomato sauce perfection. You can substitute the pipe rigate for any pasta shape you like, though I like how it holds little pockets of the sauce inside.

Pair with a salad for a great complete dinner!
