How do I make this Rigatoni Pizza Pie?

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 160°C. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil.

Rigatoni Pizza Pie | Slimming World & Weight Watchers Friendly

Step 2

Once the water is boiling, add the rigatoni pasta. Cook for 6 minutes – the pasta won’t be cooked through but it will finish cooking in the oven. Set aside.

Step 3

Finely crush the garlic into a saucepan sprayed with Frylight and cook on a low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently and being careful not to burn it.

Step 4

Keeping the heat low, add the passata, tomato puree and herbs. Mix well, add a pinch of sweetener and turn the heat up until it starts to “blip”. Leave to reduce for 15 minutes on a moderate heat, stirring occasionally.

Step 5

Meanwhile, finely chop the pepper and slice the mushrooms and tomato. Grate the cheddar cheese finely and tear the mozzarella into pieces.

Step 6

Spray a 24cm spring form tin with Frylight. Place the rigatoni pasta tubes upright into the tin – it’s best to start at one side of the tin and work across as this keeps them more upright.

Once the tin is full, squeeze as many tubes of pasta into the gaps as possible – you’ll be surprised how many you can fit in!

Step 7

Once the tin is full of the rigatoni, pour over the tomato sauce and spread over the top of the pasta.

Top with the grated cheddar first, followed by the peppers, mushrooms and tomato slices, and finally the mozzarella.

Step 8

Bake in the oven for around 25 minutes until the cheese is golden. Remove from the oven and run a knife around the edge before unclipping the tin to remove the outer ring.

Cut into 4 wedges and serve with a salad!

    1. Hi Ellie
      The ‘missing’ instruction was in the photo step-by-step guide, but hadn’t been copied to the written instructions. I’ve amended it now so all should be clearer. Thanks for getting in touch! 🙂

    1. Hi Sharon
      The recipe makes 4 servings, and uses 4 x HEA, so you’ll be using 1 HEA portion per serving. 🙂

  1. Thinking of making this But adding mince or quorn Mince into the pasta before I add the tom sauce .
    Should work has this been tried? Will let you know results Tracey Ireland

    1. Sounds great, Tracey! You may need to add a little extra passata to stop the pasta from drying out. 🙂 Let us know how you get on!

  2. I will try this recipe as it seems yummy and I just love pasta. The Slimming World site says that 70 g of light mozzarella or 45 g of reduced fat cheddar are worth 6 syns each (note that the HEA and syn value don’t update when one changes the number of portions).

    1. Hi Marissa
      The recipe card shows that the recipe uses 4 x HEA servings of cheese in total, and that the recipe serves 4. If you’re having 1/4 of the total amount then you’ll be using 1 x HEA of cheese.

      The algorithm we use will change the quantities of ingredients required, but you’ll need to calculate the Syns/HEA usage if you divide into more or less servings than suggested. Hope that helps!

  3. Thanks for this lovely recipe. I tried it yesterday and it tastes great, but as soon as I cut the pie the pasta all disintegrated into a heap, rather than staying as a slice. What am I doing wrong?

    1. Hi Emma
      You need to pack the rigatoni tightly, then leave it to stand for a few minutes once you’ve taken it from the oven. This allows it to firm up and it should hold its shape better. Hope that helps.

  4. Re Rigatoni Pizza Pie

    Would love to try this as your recipes are delicious, but living here in Spain cant find orzo,any ideas what to use

    Thanks
    Anne
