  • Fill a pot with water.  Add 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil.

  • While the peppers sauté, add the rigatoni pasta in the boiling water for 5 minutes.
  • Cut 2 long pieces of parchment paper (longer enough to fit in your oval casserole pot.  Lay one piece horizontally and the other vertically one on top of the other making sure there long enough so the food can be completely covered.
  • Sprinkle on the parchment paper the bread crumbs.
  • With a perforated spoon, transfer the pasta from the water into the casserole pot. Drizzle ¼ cup of the Greek extra virgin olive oil over the pasta. 
  • Add on the top the sausage and pepper mixture and garlic.
  • Then add the cherry tomatoes.  Sprinkle the remaining oregano and black pepper.
  • Top off with the Kasseri and Graviera cheese.  Wrap well with the parchment paper. Cover with the casserole lid and place in a 350 degree F (175C) convection oven for 40 minutes.  Serve hot.
