Cavatini Recipe?


Recommended Posts

I had never heard of Cavatini before and it sounds like Pizza Hut originated it combining "Cavatelli" and "Rotini" (or one of the Italian "inis") to make a unique dish.  Googling it brings up a ton of recipes including a "Cowboy Cavatini" https://www.crecipe.com/cowboy+cavatini+recipe+for+school+lunch+recipes that @KismetKamadomight want to look at.

Just made this at the end of last month for my Mom's Birthday. 



Pizza Hut Cavatini


Servings10 servings




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.
