  3. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, and pour in the white wine. Bring to a boil and lower the heat.
  4. Add heavy cream, half and half, and tomato paste. Cover and let simmer over low-medium heat for 15 minutes, until sauce is thickened.
  5. In a large pot, boil water and add 2 tablespoons of salt. Cook rigatoni until it is al dente.
