Cavatini Recipe

Cavatini is a family favorite at our house. Whenever I make it, I always make sure I have disposable aluminum pan on hand so I can freeze one to giveaway if there is a family in need.

If you like lasagne or spaghetti, you'll like this hearty dish.

  1. Oh yum!

  2. Hi Connie! I’m a new visitor brought here from Life in a Shoe – this recipe reminds me alot of the Italian sausage roll we love in our house, only a much larger recipe. The pictures look so good – I think I will try a scaled-down version tonight! Thanks.

  3. This looks really yummy and one I know the girls would love!

  4. We do something similar to this as well but we have a crust on top and bottom instead of noodles….like a deep dish pizza pie. We use (cheater style) 2 tubes of crescent rolls….roll out one tube for the bottom and the other for the top. Bake for 20-30 mins then I put more cheese on top and bake til melted. The kids love it!
