Stuffed Rigatoni Lasagna

I recently went grocery shopping at a “new to me, again” store called Aldi. Aldi has been in my area for well over 15 years. If you have spent any time reading my blog, you are well aware that I am very fond of grocery stores. I love discovering new stores and the “new to me” products that they carry. I shopped at Aldi occasionally when my kids still lived at home but I haven’t stopped at an Aldi Store for some time. A few days ago, I drove past an Aldi and thought I’d stop in. The Aldi store I stopped at was in Shawano WI. The store was very clean and the people working there were very friendly.

Great Prices

I actually bought more than I had expected to! I had a cart full of groceries. Many items that Aldi carries are German products and Aldi brand name products. Aldi carries some name brand products as well. They carry  a nice variety of products and among the many products I purchased, was this package of; Spinach and Ricotta Stuffed Spinach Rigatoni. We love lasagna so I went with that. Using the spinach & ricotta stuffed rigatoni to replace the lasagna noodles made for a hearty and delicious lasagna. I’ve used stuffed ravioli before in place of the lasagna noodles so I thought, why not use the stuffed rigatoni!

Stuffed Rigatoni

The stuffed rigatoni shells worked perfectly in this recipe. In fact, it turned out absolutely fantastic.  This lasagna/casserole would be the perfect dish to bring to a “potluck” or for “bring a dish to work” day.  If you have never stopped in an Aldi store before, stop in the next time you see one or if you haven’t stopped at an Aldi in awhile, stop back in, you might be pleasantly surprised.

Kitchen Tip: When making potato salad, avoid overcooking the potatoes as they will fall apart. You should be able to just pierce the potatoes with a fork when they are done~

  • Good Afternoon Lynn, We have Aldi shops here in England, they were always frowned upon because the shelves were not stacked very well, but nowadays because of the economic condition here in England, they are doing very well. I have always liked Aldi because I used to live in Germany and it was lovely buying all the German ingredients here in England. As long as the shop is clean, I really don't mind how the shelves are stacked.
    I have to tell you Lynn, your stuffed rigatoni lasagne looks delicious.
    Best Wishes
    Daphne

    • Hello Daphne~ Aldi is viewed differently here also, maybe because it isn't an all "brand name" store. I have noticed that due to the economic condition here, people seem to be giving Aldi another chance. I love to try new products and I enjoy shopping at grocery stores or markets that carry products that grocery stores don't carry:) I will say this Rigatoni Lasagna is delicious and easy to make! Thanks for stopping by~ Lynn
