    Bri22's Note:

    Cavatelli is my favorite pasta because it is a big thick pasta to bite. This recipe is from my aunt-in-law; she serves it in a crock pot for all of our summer get togethers. The flavor is just as amazing as the smell of it cooking!

      This is a great basis for additions. Try adding shrimp or boneless chicken chunks. Very good.

      Sorry, I just did not like this. I make broccoli and maccaroni often, but I don't usually thicken it with cornstarch. I think it is just a personal preference. Thank you for the recipe anyway.

      Good, but not sure why the mushrooms are there, I've never had cavatelli & broccoli with mushrooms in it... they seemed a little out of place to me, but great recipe!
