    1. I haven’t tried this with macaroni. You may need more macaroni than rigatoni since it is a smaller noodle. You will just have just have to use your best judgment on the amount of pasta.

    1. I would use frozen. Make sure to thaw and drain the water out really good. I press it between paper towels and really ring it out. Just add it to the pasta mixture before putting it in the pan. Enjoy!
