Preparation & Serving


  • Prep: 5 Minutes
  • Cook/Bake: 45 Minutes
  • Serves: 4


  • 1 (16-oz.) box Giant Eagle rigatoni
  • 1 Tbsp. Market District extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ lb. Giant Eagle ground beef
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 green bell pepper, cored & thinly sliced
  • 1 (24-oz.) jar Giant Eagle tomato basil sauce
  • 1 cup Giant Eagle black olives, drained & halved
  • 1 cup Giant Eagle sliced pepperoni
  • 1 cup Giant Eagle shredded Mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Once water has boiled cook rigatoni for 10 minutes checking for a perfect al dente pasta. Drain Well.
  • Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan, heat olive oil on high for one minute then add ground beef, breaking apart with wooden spoon as you cook. Season with salt and pepperOnce meat appears half-way cooked (about 5-6 minutes) add in sliced green peppers and cook for another 5 minutes or until internal temperature of ground beef reaches 160°F. Once peppers are soft, add tomato basil sauce and bring to a simmer. Toss pasta with 1 cup of the sauce.
  • Spoon pasta to a baking dish. Top with the ground beef and sauce mixture. Decorate the top with the olives and pepperoni and tap the pan several times so all the sauce and toppings land in the nooks of the pasta. Top with cheese.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, remove from oven when cheese is brown and bubbly. Spoon on to plate and enjoy with a salad.
Note: feel free to customize the recipe by adding your favorite pizza toppings.
