One Pot Pizza Rigatoni

Pepperoni Pizza is a big favorite on pizza night at the Launchpad.  SoBA would eat his weight in pasta (and peas) if given the chance. (Parenthetically, when did LBA and SoBA phase out of the McDonald's Happy Meals in favor of a 20-piece chicken nuggets and a Quarter Pounder meal?)

Here's another one-pot recipe that should please the diners at the Launchpad. Via A Night Owl blog, from BuzzFeed.

One Pot Pizza Rigatoni
