A couple of months ago I sent my son a text that went something like this: check out this link … we should do this for a party and by “we” I mean you since it requires patience and precision … oh, and it’s in German (I think), but the photos should be sufficient information.
And then I forgot about it until this weekend when Jim surprised me with a visit and dinner.
It’s really simple to make, says I who didn’t do it. But, my son concurred. He just looked at the pictorial for technique (see link above), used his own bolognese sauce and added a pint of ricotta to the béchamel sauce. He said it took about 1-1/4 pounds of pasta using a standard size spring form pan.
Besides Rigatoni Kuchen, it’s also called timbale or macaroni pie and you can easily find recipes online though this is one of the nicest looking and the pictures tell a thousand words.
I think you will agree that it’s a spectacular presentation and it was moist, satisfying and uber delicious.
