Bowtie Skillet Lasagna




   I've decided there are a few recipes on the blog that deserve a 're-do'. When I go through some of the very first recipes I blogged, I can't help but cringe at the pictures. In no way am I saying I'm a professional food photographer now, but I've definitely learned a few things about 'what not to do' when photographing food.

Taking a picture of lasagna at 8:00 pm with the flash on, is one of them...

   This Bowtie Skillet Lasagna was one of those recipes begging for a new picture. This is a delicious meal and a family favorite of ours! My kids love this. It's really comforting and always hits the spot. It's another one of those meals you can have ready in under 30 minutes. Perfect for busy weeknights!
 

Bowtie Skillet Lasagna

10 ounces Bowtie or Farfalle noodles
1 pound lean ground beef
2 Tablespoons Olive oil
1 (24 ounce) jar Spaghetti sauce ( I use 'Ragu' Traditional)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning mix
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup sour cream




Directions: Boil noodles in a large pot of water, according to package directions. Drain water.

Meanwhile, cook ground beef in a large skillet until browned. Drain grease. Add cooked noodles to ground beef and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Stir together.

Add spaghetti sauce, garlic powder, italian seasoning, mozzarella cheese and sour cream to the beef and noodles. Carefully stir together to combine.

Turn heat to low, and continue to cook and stir until mixture is thoroughly heated. About 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

I made this last night and it was really good and so easy! It just needs more seasoning imo, at least for this southern girl and her family. Heh.

The Batwing bow tie is narrow and has a look that resembles a mix between classic bow tie and ribbon. The batwing typically has a size of 1.5″ – 2″. bowties

Rebecca Berman said...

Yummy -- we didn't have any bowtie pasta so I just used some egg noodles -- still super yummy Thank you for your great recipes

My husband does NOT like sour cream.. Does it add a lot of 'sour cream' taste to the dish? Would it still taste as great without the sour cream?

Holly said...

Cortney, I don't think it adds a lot of sour cream taste, it's mainly to add creaminess to the lasagna. Maybe you could substitute ricotta cheese, or even greek yogurt!?

Holly said...

And, I actually think it would still taste delicious without substituting it at all. Just leave it out and it should be great!
