Bow-tie Pasta

I guess I am in an Italian kick!

This recipe is so quick, so easy, and so FABULOUS!!  I love anything with marinara sauce on it, so this recipe is a winner with me!!  My family loved it too!!

It was so good, if I had the ingredients on hand I would whip it up for lunch right now!! (Yes it is that quick to make!)

This picture doesn't do it justice, but it will have to do!


1 pound lean Ground Beef
1/2 cup diced onion
1 box Bow-Tie Noodles
3 cups (or more) Spaghetti Sauce 
(I used Barilla Tomato & Basil)
Garlic powder
Italian seasoning
Crushed red pepper
Lawry's All Purpose Seasoning
1/2-1 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 cup Sour Cream
Grated Parmesan Cheese

Cook the bow-tie pasta according to package directions.  If it gets done before your sauce does, drain and toss with a little olive oil.  (Save a little of the pasta water in case you need to thin your sauce a little.)

Fry ground beef and onion in pan until no longer pink.  Drain or wipe out any grease.  Season with garlic powder, italian seasoning, crushed red pepper (just a few flakes!), oregano, basil, Lawry's, and pepper.  I just sprinkle each spice over the meat fairly generously.  

Add in spaghetti sauce.  When sauce is bubbly, add in mozzarella cheese and sour cream.  Heat together about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Stir in pasta.  Add a little pasta water if sauce seems to thick.  Sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan cheese and serve!!

I added some garlic toast (french bread sliced, and topped with butter, garlic powder, and Lawry's, then toasted under the broiler until brown) and a green tossed salad to complete this meal!


  1. We will have to try this too. Enjoyed our stuffed shells last night :)

  3. This looks fantastic! I'm such a fan of pasta because there's so many different types of sauces. This recipe looks delish!
