To describe this recipe it's like pizza and pasta.

Here is a list of ingredients: wagon wheel shaped pasta, pepperoni, mushrooms, black olives, green pepper, onion, spaghetti sauce, crushed red pepper, cheddar and mozzarella

This is what it looks like all mixed up. It's ready to bake for 30 minutes or until bubbly. After the 30 minutes sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake until melted.

8 oz (1/2 lb) uncooked pasta, wagon wheel shape
1 (4 oz) pkg. sliced pepperoni, cut into quarters
1 (4 oz) can sliced mushrooms
2.25 can sliced black olives
1/2 cup green pepper, finely chopped
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1 (26.5 oz) can spaghetti sauce (Hunts Traditional or Del Monte)
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (depending on how spicy you like it)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella

  1. This is the closest thing to Pizza Hut cavatini that I've found. Thank you.

    1. I'm glad you liked it! Do they still serve the cavatini at Pizza Hut?

  2. I'm not sure. My husband doesn't like Pizza Hut so we never eat there.
