Course Main Course
Servings 8


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 small shallot finely diced
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper adjust to your liking
  • 16 ounces uncooked rigatoni pasta
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 20 ounces high-quality marinara sauce
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt adjust to your liking
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup shaved Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup cooked green peas


  • In a pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add diced shallots and minced garlic as the butter melts.
  • Sprinkle in the crushed red pepper and mix well. Let the shallots and garlic soften for 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking or burning.
  • Add the uncooked pasta to the hot pan, followed by marinara sauce, broth, and salt. Mix everything together and bring it to a gentle boil to cook the pasta. Cover and reduce the heat to medium-low, letting it cook for about 12-13 minutes.
  • Once the rigatoni is perfectly cooked, stir in the heavy cream, peas, and Parmesan cheese. Mix over medium heat until the sauce comes together. Serve immediately, and feel free to garnish with fresh herbs and an extra sprinkle of Parmesan! Enjoy your delightful one-pot wonder.
