Slimming World's hake and rigatoni pasta is the kind of dish you maybe wouldn't think to make - but once you do it's sure to become a firm family favourite! Hake is often under-appreciated, losing out to its more popular friend cod, but in this dish - it is the perfect base for the delicious tomatoey garlicky flavours of this sauce. If you're cooking for children, this is a great way to broaden their palettes, while still keeping it easy - and very tasty! As with many of the Slimming World recipes - you can make the sauce ahead, freeze, and just quickly boil up some rigatoni pasta on the night you want to eat it.
