This is one of those comfort Italian foods for me. It is super simple and great on a cold autumn night. I hope you enjoy it. You can use penne but cavatelli is a ricotta pasta that you can get in the frozen section in certain food stores. You can get it in a Kroger (I finally found it in fry's) you can also find it in an Italian specialty store.
