Easy Cavatelli One Pot Meal

I have not made this - it was given to me... believe it is from Mr. Food.

This 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.

Serves: 4

1 pound frozen cavatelli pasta ( or use cooked penne pasta)

2 (10-3/4-ounce) cans condensed cream of celery soup

1/2 cup milk

2 medium-sized tomatoes, chopped (use canned in the winter)

1 (3-ounce) package sliced pepperoni, each slice cut in half

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

In a large pot, cook pasta according to package directions; drain and set aside in a colander.

In the same pot, combine remaining ingredients and heat over medium-low heat for 10 to 12 minutes, or until bubbling.

Return pasta to pot and toss to coat. Heat 2 to 3 more minutes, or until heated through.

Serve immediately.
