My mother used to make Cavatini for me on special occasions. Unfortunately, I never got her recipe. So, I came up with the closest I could find and added some lower fat options since I try to make healthy food for my family. My kids LOVE it (had seconds AND thirds!). I hope you like it, too!
Brown ground turkey, onion and bell pepper. Add pepperoni and sauce.
Boil all pastas for 10 minutes. Drain.
Add to meat sauce mixture.
In a medium bowl, mix 2 cups of mozzarella, the cottage cheese, and Italian Seasoning.
In a 9x13 baking dish, layer almost ½ of pasta/meat mixture. Then, add a layer of ½ cheese mixture. Add another layer of pasta/meat (make sure to leave enough for a thin third layer). Add a layer of the rest of the cheese mixture. Top with remaining pasta/meat, and sprinkle on the ½ cup of mozzarella.
