This No-Boil Three Cheese Baked Pasta is easy, cheesy, and requires FIVE minutes of prep before going in the oven. It’s a weeknight wonder!


  • Olive oil
  • 1 pound Rigatoni 
  • 2 (24 oz) jars Marinara Pasta Sauce
  • 1 (16 oz) bag frozen Broccoli Florets
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese plus 2 tablespoons
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese 
  • 15 oz. ricotta cheese
  • basil for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush a 9×13 inch baking dish with olive oil and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl add the dried rigatoni, marinara sauce, frozen broccoli, salt, garlic powder, 1 cup mozzarella and 3/4 cup parmesan cheese. Stir until well combined. 
  3. Fold in the ricotta cheese then pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Top with remaining parmesan and mozzarella cheese. 
  4. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 40-45 minutes, then uncover and cook for an additional 20 minutes until noodles are cooked through. If you want the top to brown a little more, put it under the broiler for 1-2 minutes. Add some torn basil and serve!
