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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
