{Let's Eat} Recipe Swap - Cavatini


This week I've gotten it together to participate in Flip Flops & Pearls' Recipe Swap.  Hooray!

I'm going to share the recipe for cavatini.  What I really like about this recipe is that you can make it your own.  Don't like ground beef?  No problem!  Add ground turkey :)  Or...Morning Star Crumbles!  Whatever your fancy.  Cavatini is basically the Italian (warm) version of a Chef's Salad.  Whatever you have left in the kitchen...throw it in!  It's quick, easy and delicious.


3cups of pasta (any kind/mix & match)
1lb ground beef
1 package pepperoni
1 jar of sliced mushrooms
2cups shredded mozzarella cheese
16oz spaghetti sauce of any kind

****Reminder, this is what I used.  You can switch out cheeses, meats, pasta, sauce.  Make it your own!  Just use these measurements as a guide :)

1. Boil pasta
2. Brown ground beef
3. Cut pepperoni into quarters
4. Preheat to 350.
5. Dump everything into A 9x13 baking dish and stir it up. Don't cover.
6. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Next week I plan to share my recipe for Chicken Stroganoff Pot Pie made in the crock pot.  It's only 535 calories per serving!  Just as delicious as Marie Calendar's, but only 1/4 of the calories :)  Mmmmm....

Happy Cooking!

Darn that looks good. I'm definitely making this since that would be so easy to throw together after work.
I also can't wait for your chicken stroganoff pot pie recipe. I've been trying to think of things to make in the crock pot. I love being able to cook dinner while I'm working :)
