Recipe from Taste of Home


  • 1 cup uncooked cavatappi pasta

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 1/2 cup 2% milk

  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  • 1 package (18 ounces) Hawaiian sweet rolls

  • 1 carton (16 ounces) refrigerated fully cooked barbecue shredded pork, warmed

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard

  • 1 jalapeno pepper, sliced, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Cook pasta according to package directions.

  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour and pepper until smooth; gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir until thickened, 3-5 minutes. Stir in cheese until melted. Drain pasta; stir into cheese sauce. Set aside.

  3. Without separating rolls, cut rolls in half horizontally; arrange bottom halves in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Layer with pork and pasta mixture. Replace top halves of rolls. Combine melted butter, honey and mustard. Brush over roll tops.

  4. Bake until tops are golden brown and filling is hot, 10-12 minutes. If desired, top with jalapeno pepper slices.
