Shred your own Parmesan. If you have time, always buy the wedge and shred it yourself! It will taste much better than the pre-shredded stuff and it's usually cheaper.
It’s all about the cooking liquid. The cooking liquid is very important in this recipe as you'll be cooking the rigatoni in it. It's important to use use your judgement as far as adding more liquid towards the end of the cooking process. If it seems to be reducing too quickly and the pasta is not fully cooked yet, add another splash of half and half or veg stock so that the pasta can cook through.
The sauce should be smooth and creamy. The best part of a one pot pasta is that you cook everything in one pot. Which will save you time and give you the creamiest pasta sauce ever. As mentioned above, you may need to adjust the liquid based on your personal preference. I like a real saucy pasta so that everything is fully coated in the creamy, dreamy sauce.
