Cavatini with a twist

I love to cook and Cavatini is one of my favorite dishes to fix and I think it’s because with just two people to feed this dish will last at least three nights for dinner and all I have to do is change the salad and bread to make it look like something different each night.  It’s a quick casserole that’s a toss up between pizza and spaghetti.

Normally this recipe consists of cooked rotini noodles, ground beef cooked with onions and green peppers, spices of your choice and spaghetti sauce.  Then you cover that with pepperoni and top with mozzarella cheese.

The last time I baked it I added to the cooked ground beef a whole, sliced kielbasa, lots of onions and lots of green peppers.  It was divine!!

This is such a quick and easy recipe and I’ll add it to my recipe page.  Hope you enjoy!  We serve it with a salad and garlic bread.
