Rigatoni al Forno (oven baked Rigatoni)

1 pound of Rigatoni pasta
4 cups of tomato sauce
½ pound of hamburger
½ pound of Grated Parmigiano cheese
1 pound of mozzarella
¼ pound of ham
½ cup of white wine
Olive oil
1 medium onion
Salt optional

In a sauce pan add some olive oil and chopped onion. Once the onion turns clear add the chopped meat and saute` in the oil and the onion.
After 4 minutes add the wine and let it evaporate (Reduce) for 3-5 minutes.
Add the tomato sauce and let everything cook at low heat for 20 minutes.
Stir occasionally.
In a separate pot boil water and cook the rigatoni. The rigatoni should be cooked "Al Dente". In an oven pan spread a thin layer of meat sauce and add a layer of rigatoni. Cover the rigatoni with a layer of sauce and sprinkle with Parmigiano.
Add a layer of mozzarella cut in small cubes and a layer of slices of ham.
Repeat the layering process until you have no more rigatoni. The last layer of rigatoni should be covered with a generous layer of sauce, a good sprinkle of Parmigiano and mozzarella cubes. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 375
