Bowtie Lasagna

So, this is how my bowtie lasagna looked:

Ok, so I need to make sure I don't get distracted that way I crumble the meat all the way. Lesson learned!!!
This is what it's supposed to look like:

I mean does anything ever look as good as the model picture? Ha!

LC liked it. I'm not a huge red sauce fan. I don't eat traditional spaghetti, not a big fan of lasagna, etc. I figured this was easy enough for me to start. Here's the recipe from Tasty Kitchen:

Recipe Description

If you’re in the mood for lasagna, but are out of time, try this!


  • 1 pound Ground Chuck
  • 5 cups Bow Tie Noodles
  • 3 cups Spaghetti Sauce (or Pizza Sauce, Whatever You Prefer)
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning (or More, Make It To Your Taste)
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream

Preparation Instructions

Fry ground chuck in small pan. Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions.
After noodles are cooked, drain and drizzle with olive oil. Mix in your spaghetti sauce. (I can’t guarantee your results on this, because I’m spoiled; I am a “home canner” and have the BEST sauce on my shelf, a home canned marinara sauce that I use for lots of stuff—pizza, spaghetti, and of course, THIS.)
Add your fried hamburger, seasonings, cheese, and sour cream. Fold together and allow it all to combine and melt together, over low heat, for about 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Serve to your family and be prepared to have it disappear before your very eyes.

This was super easy and a fast, quick meal if you're crunched for time.
