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.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This cavatini recipe will make your house smell like a pizzeria! We loved using whole wheat pasta, ground turkey, and turkey pepperoni. It helps to make this recipe a little healthier. The contrast of the meat sauce mixed with the creamy meat mixture is perfectly balanced and divine. Butter some garlic bread and toss together a green salad for a completely delicious meal.
