yum called cavatini
one of the best things about my hometown is this little locally owned pizza place called bobe's. I even worked there for quite a while in my teens: in fact, it was my first job and when i visit, it the always the place i meet up with my girlfriends.While they have since expanded into other kinds of food they offer and seriously - it is all delicious, their pizza/pasta choices are just, like, awesome.
one of the dishes they serve there is cavatini. i don't even know why i thought it would be good to make this: i never eat this. but whateves. glad i did. now, maybe there is certain criteria for making this dish but one afternoon i decided to make it and here's what i did. and oh man, i was so glad because it was so good. EVEN THOUGH my husband just said it was, "okay". but he doesn't get things like i do (art, movies, literature, clothes, and anything else cool) so he doesn't count. plus, my kids loved it and asked for more. so, it's good.
box of penne pasta
ground beef, cooked and drained*
just about anything else you want or like on a pizza
cook the pasta until done, drain, and place into a 9x13. dice up any of the toppings you want (pepperoni, too) and mix into the pasta. sprinkle some shredded moz in, too, and mix well. once everything is all mixed up and awesome, pour the sauce over the top, no need to mix in. and then top it off with mozzerella to cover and put in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes, or until cheese is golden and bubbly.
