Heat a medium nonstick saute pan on medium heat. Add the pepperoni and saute until crisp and browned, about 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Heat the olive oil in the same pan on medium-low heat and add the onion, bell pepper and garlic. Saute 5 minutes or until softened. Add the tomatoes and juice. Simmer for about 20 minutes. Add the pepperoni back to the pan along with the marjoram and oregano.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the cavatelli and cook for 8 minutes. Drain and pour the sauce over. Garnish with the chopped parsley and Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
