  • 200 g of rigatoni
  • ¾ cup of tomato puree
  • ¼ cup of double cream
  • A splash of lemon juice
  • ½ tsp of onion powder
  • ½ tsp of garlic powder
  • A pinch of oregano
  • a pinch of salt
  • A splash of sunflower oil


  • Boil a pot of water and add 200g of rigatoni (or the pasta alternative of your choice). Cook it for 8-12 minutes and then remove it from heat. It will still be hard. It should not be cooked all the way through at this point.
  • Heat up some sunflower oil or olive oil in a medium saucepan. Add ¾ cup of tomato puree and stir for 1 minute while it cooks.
  • Then, pour in ¼ cup of double cream. Stir to mix it with the tomato puree and season it with a pinch of salt, ½ tsp of garlic powder, and ½ tsp of onion powder. You can also add a few pinches of oregano at this time. Splash some lemon juice on it and mix it all together. Let it simmer for up to 10 minutes on low heat.
  • After 10 minutes, add the rigatoni. Stir it all together and let everything cook for a few more minutes. If the mixture is too dry, you can add a little bit of water to your liking.
  • Serve on a dish and enjoy!
