PastaBakes are not even close to Cavatini Supremes. The PastaBakes are ok but Cavatini Supreme was one of the best mass produced restaurant foods ever.

YES YES YES!!! I couldn't remember what this was called the other day. I was at Pizza Hut describing it to someone 11 years younger than me and just thinking about it made me hungrier. It was so savory and just so damn good. You just want to stuff your cheeks with it!

I worked as a cook at Pizza Hut during High School in the 80s - there is no mystery to this dish, very easy to make at home! For each serving, layer some cooked rotini in a dish with a three pieces of pepperoni sliced in half, a tablespoon or two of cooked and drained ground beef, a tablespoon or two of diced onion, a tablespoon or two of diced bell pepper and a few slices of fresh mushrooms. Ladle marinara (any jar sauce is fine) over the pasta and place three slices of mozarella cheese across the top diagonally. The pizza ovens were around 550°, as I recall, and it took about 5-10 minutes in those, but I make it in my toaster oven set at 350° for about 20 minutes and it comes out great. If you're a fan of PH pizza, you'll notice the ingredients are the same as what's on their Supreme Pizza, which is where the "Supreme" in "Cavatini Supreme" comes from!

I agree with Jim. PH PastaBakes are not even close. They are plain and bland. Cavatini Supreme was much more flavorful. Don't forget the black olives.

Pizza Hut made the biggest mistake when they stopped serving the cavatini supreme! Hands down the best thing they had! Wish they would bring it back just like they used to make it in the 70s & 80s! Been searching for that taste for over 35 years! Tried alot of sauces, but not the same!!

I agree it was the best. I miss that pasta still. You can't really make it the same at home even if you use the right ingredients. It was their sauce that made it taste like it did. The home version doesn't have that sauce. The pasta they put on the buffet is similar sometimes. I worked there in high school....I miss those lunch breaks with that old time food.

Wow. I thought I was the only one mourning the passing of Cavatini Supreme and its associated food bar at PH. Glad to know I am not alone!

I worked at Pizza Hut in the 70’s, prepped and cooked tons of Cavatini and Cavatini Supreme. The pasta “wheels” were not cooked in the traditional manner; they were dumped uncooked into a large container and a bag of seasonings, vegetable oil, and water was added and mixed. It sat overnight to make the next days supply. The pasta was measured into a baking dish, sauced, topped and covered with cheese. Oven baked at 550 degrees for 8-10 minutes or so. Of course, we never really knew what was in the seasoning bag, or sauce mixture. But what I wouldn’t give for just one more dish of that stuff! Very popular at the time, couldn’t believe they discontinued it :(
