Years ago Pizza Hut sold a Cavatini dish that we loved. They stopped offering it on their menu so my husband went on a quest to duplicate the recipe. I think his version is even tastier!
Oh, this recipe brings back so many memories! My cousin and I spent many a night enjoying Pizza Hut cavatini and this is a dead ringer! I can’t wait to prepare it again for my family.
Add onions, peppers, and garlic powder. Sauté for about 4 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook pasta according to box directions.
Heat sauce and combine with cooked hamburger and cooked sausage.
Use cooking spray to lightly grease an 11 X 13 casserole dish.
Make about 2 layers
Place 1/2 of the cooked pasta in the dish,
followed by 1/2 the vegetables,
1/2 of the pepperoni,
and 1/2 sauce, meat mixture.
Repeat another layer. Spread mozzarella and parmesan cheese over top.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until cheese is melted.
