Bow Tie Lasagna


Ok people. Here’s the deal. It’s like lasagna … but without the fight to keep the lasagna noodles from sticking to each other and causing a total pasta kitchen meltdown. I’m all for avoiding meltdowns. Therefore, bow tie lasagna. Easy. Warm. Comforting. And so good!


8 oz. bow tie pasta

1 lb. sausage

2½ c spaghetti sauce (love Three-Cheese Prego)

1 c sour cream

1 c small curd cottage cheese

2 c mozzarella cheese, shredded

parmesan cheese, optional


Cook pasta according to package directions or until tender (I cook mine for 14 minutes). Drain. Brown sausage, add spaghetti sauce, and simmer over medium-low heat for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine sour cream, cottage cheese, and mozzarella cheese in bowl. To assemble bow tie lasagna, butter large baking dish and layer half the pasta, half the cheese mixture, and half the sauce. Repeat layers, ending with sauce. Cover with foil and bake at 425°F for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese if desired.
