Just made this at the end of last month for my Mom's Birthday.
Pizza Hut Cavatini
1 lb Italian sausage, hot
1 cup green pepper thinly sliced, approximately 2" long
1 cup red pepper thinly sliced, approximately 2" long
3/4 cup onion chopped
6 oz. mushrooms chopped
4 oz spiral noodles
4 oz shell noodles
4 oz wheel noodles
1 & 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1 pinch red pepper flakes
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
48 oz. spaghetti sauce Prego is best
8 oz. pepperoni slices
5 oz. Parmesan cheese shredded
8 oz mozzarella cheese shredded
Brown ground Italian sausage until 90% cooked. Drain. Press out excess grease with a paper towel if desired.
Add peppers, onions, and mushrooms and cook for another 2 minutes, stirring often. Add sauce and spices. Bring to a slight boil. Remove from heat. Set aside.
Cook pastas according to package directions. Rinse in cool water. Drain. Set aside.
Spray a 9” x 13” casserole dish (glass is best with this recipe) with non-stick spray. Layer 1/3 of the pasta, spoon on 1/3 of sauce. Top with 1/3 of the pepperoni and then 1/3 of the cheese.
Repeat layers: pasta, sauce, pepperoni, cheese.
Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until mixture is bubbly and cheese is melted. Check after 30 minutes and cover if browning too quickly.
