Large Non-Stick Pan


  • Roughly chop spinach.
  • Roughly chop parsley.
Cook beef
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter, then onions, beef and 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) chili flakes. (NOTE: Reference heat guide.)
  • Cook, breaking up beef into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.**
  • Season with garlic salt.
Cook rigatoni
  • Meanwhile, add rigatoni to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 8-10 min.
  • Reserve 1/2 cup (1 cup) pasta water, then drain.
Make sauce
  • Add cream cheese, marinara, roasted pepper pesto, 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) sugar and 1/4 cup (1/2 cup) reserved pasta water to the pan (from step 2).
  • Cook, stirring often, until cream cheese melts and sauce comes to a simmer.
  • Reduce heat to medium. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens slightly, 2-3 min.
Finish rigatoni
  • Add rigatoni and half the Parmesan to the pan. Stir until cheese melts and sauce coats rigatoni. (NOTE: Add remaining reserved pasta water, 2 tbsp at a time, to loosen the sauce, if desired.)
  • Add spinach and stir until wilted, 1 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Finish and serve
  • Divide rigatoni between plates. Sprinkle with parsley, remaining Parmesan and any remaining chili flakes, if desired.

If you've opted to get beef, cook it in the same way the recipe instructs you to cook the chorizo.
