BOW TIE LASAGNA

I have no idea why I never use bow tie pasta. It’s so cute. It’s light yet hearty at the same time. One reason is probably because I cannot find bow tie in whole wheat and I usually only buy whole wheat pasta but one trip to the store I accidentally got this box of bow tie instead of whole wheat elbows and decided to develop a couple recipes with it. The first one up is just a simple lasagna recipe. I love to make dishes like this ahead of time because when I serve it the next day or two, it’s soooo much better. This one was made to have after one of our son’s games, just dish out and heat up. 
Yum  



 What you'll need

BOW TIE LASAGNA
INGREDIENTS
1/2 pound ground turkey 
1/2 pound ground Italian sausage
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 jar marinara or pasta sauce
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
Salt and Pepper to taste 
1 (12 oz) box bow tie pasta 
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 egg
1/2 (16 oz) tub ricotta cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1 (8oz) package mozzarella cheese or an Italian blend, divided 


DIRECTIONS
Heat oven to 375°. Cook meat, onion and skillet in a large pan until no longer pink. Add basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Add jar of sauce and simmer on low Meanwhile cook noodles according to directions, when done, drain and toss in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. In a medium bowl, mix egg, ricotta, sour cream and half of the cheese until well blended. In a 2 quart dish, layer meat sauce, bow ties, all of ricotta mixture, meat sauce, bow ties and more meat sauce. Top with the rest of cheese and bake for 20-25 minutes. Let sit 5-10 minutes before serving. 


I just made a 2 quart baking dish of this but if you want to do a big 9x13, I’d double it. This would be a great meal to have those little Mini Cannoli Cups I showed you last week.


HAPPY TASTY TUESDAY FRIENDS!!

AND in case you missed it, since many of you requested it, the Walk-In Closet Tour was yesterday.

  4. GIRL! I could eat my screen right now! Seriously! I eat pizza for breakfast and this peri-menopausal Mama is a CARB QUEEN!! I never thought about using bow tie for my lasagna recipe before and I buy whole wheat, too! I hope you made this when all the men were home because I bet they would devour it! Happy Tuesday, Tootsie!

  10. I am not sure why I haven't thought to use other noodles than lasagna noodles for this dish?!?! They would be so much easier to work with! And you are so right, pasta is ALWAYS better as reheat. Hope you are having a fabulous week!

  13. Our kids LOVE bowtie pasta! For some reason they are way more inclined to eat a dish with bowtie than any other pasta! It hasn't ever occurred to me to use it in lasagna! So smart!

  20. This looks so, so good. I always use bow tie pasta when I make pasta con broc. I love the idea of layering it to make lasagna. I need to try this!! I've tried so many of your recipes and love them. I think the recent recipes of yours I've tried have been your cheesy chicken casserole and the crustless spinach quiche! Both were winners!
