    This is from the Weight Watcher magazine Jan/Feb issue.
    I haven't tried it yet, but will soon!
    Makes 6 servings~~ (about 1 cup each) 5 points each

    12 ounces rigatoni
    3/4 cup reduced-sodium tomato sauce
    1/2 cup fat-free half-and-half
    1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
    2 tablespoons (1 ounce) part-skim ricotta
    2 tablespoons (1 ounce) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese

    1. Preheat the oven to 500 F. Spray a 9 x 13" baking pan with non-stick spray.

    2. Cook the rigatoni according to package directions; drain and keep warm.

    C. Combine the tomato sauce, half-and-half, mozzarella, ricotta, and Gorgonzola cheeses in a medium bowl. Add the hot pasta and toss to coat. Spread the mixture evenly in the prepared baking pan and bake until bubbly and browned on top, about 7 minutes. Serve at once.

    I finally made this one...wasn't impressed at all. I'm going to re-check the recipe and make sure I'm not missing something!!! :eek: I added some frozen chopped spinach, and a few crushed red pepper flakes, to try and spice it up, but it was still bland.

    I haven't made this yet but I can already tell that it needs a generous 3-4 cloves of minced garlic, maybe more. Also needs salt and pepper. I like the spinach idea. And I agree with the addition of red pepper flakes - probably 1/2 tsp. Maybe use extra ricotta or mozzarella instead of gorgonzola. Is there enough sauce for 12 oz. of pasta? I think I'd up the tomato sauce to 1 cup. Adding some sliced mushrooms, finely chopped red bell pepper or onion would be good - there are all kinds of possibilities with this basic recipe. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

    I made this one too cause it looked so good in the illustration....well, I guess that was just a picture. It was kind of dry and didn't have a whole lot of flavor to it. I think I'll stick to low fat alfredo in the future. :rolleyes:
