Serving Up {Pasta}: Rigatoni

Pasta is pretty much a staple in our home.  The kids kind of demand it!  Okay, so I admit that they don't have to ask more than once as I am a pretty big fan of pasta too.  This super easy, super quick, super delicious pasta dish is one that I grew up eating.  It just never goes out of style!

1 pkg. rigatoni noodles, cooked and drained
1 pound hamburger or sausage, browned
2 pkgs. dry spaghetti sauce mix, Italian flavored
2 8-ounce cans tomato sauce
2 cups water
8 ounces mozzerella cheese, cut into 1/2" cubes
1 8-ounce pkg. cream cheese, cubed

Combine the cooked meat, sauce mix, tomato sauce and water in a large dutch oven pan.  Heat and add 1/2 of the mozzerella cheese and 1/2 of the cream cheese; melt slightly.  Pour the sauce over the cooked noodles and stir to combine.  Add the remaining cheese cubes and transfer all to a large baking dish.  Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.
