When your guests see the five-star presentation of these single serving Italian baked pasta casseroles, they’ll wonder how you did it — no one will believe you made these easy, cheesy mini rigatoni pies in a coffee mug.
The magic behind this elegant and eye-catching dish is actually really simple: layer rigatoni pasta stuffed with mozzarella cheese, marinara sauce, and fresh basil in a mug, bake it in the oven until the cheese is ooey-gooey and the sauce is bubbling, and then turn it upside-down onto a plate for the big reveal.
This mug meal is a quickie rigatoni pie that you can make without a spingform pan. Lovers of pasta al forno, baked ziti, and lasagna are definitely going to flip for it. And all you pasta fiends out there? You’ll appreciate the built-in portion control.
