Cavatini

Laurie, Is this anything like the Cavatini Pizza Hut use to serve? They use to serve it in individual boat like casseroles (can't think of the name of them) I will be so glad to try this. Think I will use WACKY MAC pasta for it. Thanks (08/30/2006)

Cavatini

Hi WIsgal, I don't know! I've never eaten at Pizza Hut. My sister - in - law made this for our Family Reunion out of her cookbook. I think after she topped it off with the mozzarella cheese she cooked it longer than 5 minutes because the top was brown and crunchy.

Good idea with the individual boats.. Think I'll do that next time instead of large pan. (08/31/2006)
