TikTok's Honeycomb Pasta Recipe With Photos

Ingredients

  1. 1 pound rigatoni pasta
    3 cups tomato sauce
    1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    Fresh mozzarella balls
    1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
    Basil leaves (optional)
    1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions

  1. Boil water, then cook rigatoni pasta according to the package instructions. Drain two minutes before recommended time.
  2. Drain the noodles and add half of the olive oil to the pasta. Lightly toss noodles to spread oil around.
  3. While the oven is preheating to 400 degrees, brush the oil on the sides of your springform cake pan (I used a 9-inch round pan). Add a little tomato sauce to the bottom of the pan.
  4. Line up your pasta inside the pan, with the noodles sticking straight up. Make sure they are tightly packed. This forms the base of your honeycomb!
  5. Pour tomato sauce over the top of the pasta. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese on top.
  6. Top with fresh mozzarella balls (I used the smaller pearls, but you can also cut bigger cheese balls to work). Add shredded Parmesan to the top.
  7. Sprinkle basil on top if you like.
  8. Cover top with foil and place on foil-lined baking pan.
  9. Bake for 15 minutes.
  10. Remove foil and bake for another 15 minutes. The cheese should be bubbly and toasted.
  11. Remove the top of the pan and serve with salad and wine. Bon appétit!
