Creamy Cavatelli

(5 Votes)
12 Min

Creamy Cavatelli is a great last-minute throw-together. The cavatelli is in the freezer, the soup is in the cupboard, the pepperoni is in the fridge, and the tomatoes are on the counter. In minutes, you've got a super meal.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound frozen cavatelli pasta
  • 2 (10-3/4-ounce) cans condensed cream of celery soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 medium-sized tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 (3-ounce) package sliced pepperoni, each slice cut in half
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
What To Do:
  1. In a large pot, cook pasta according to package directions; drain and set aside in a colander.
  2. In the same pot, combine remaining ingredients and heat over medium-low heat for 10 to 12 minutes, or until bubbling.
  3. Return pasta to pot and toss to coat. Heat 2 to 3 more minutes, or until heated through. Serve immediately.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I think this recipe sounds great! I have some turkey pepperoni in the cupboard I am going to try it with and instead of onion and garlic powder, I will sautee in butter & use chopped garlic & onions & maybe fresh chopped basic too! I will add some freshly grated cheese as well

I used the dried penne! And it was wonderful!! Have made it twice now! Second time I added more pepperoni!

Wow! The picture with the asparagus added to it looks absolutely delicious!

You can find cavatelli in the frozen food section, near the ravioli,etc.

I also would like to try this, but cannot find the cavatelli. Please help

This is so quick and easy and pleases the pickiest eaters! Instead of cavetelli pasta you can also use penne pasta. I don't always buy the frozen kind, I used the dry box kind as well and just cook it according to the package directions say for 4 servings. Leftovers are great for lunch too!

Where on earth do you find cavatelli? Would love to try the recipe but have been to 5 different stores and no one handles cavatelli. Is there some other pasta I can substitute for the cavatelli?

cavatelli is usually with the frozen ravioli. if you still can't find it try gnocchi, or mini ravioli.

I used dried penne! It was awesome! I used more pepperoni the second time!!

This is an easy and excellent recipe! The pepperoni gives it just enough spice not to be boring. The Tamale Pie from a few weeks ago in wonderful and both of them are so easy to prepare. Thank you Mr. Food! You are now my new hero!!
