I get a newsletter from a local Real Estate agent. It’s a real folksy-type of newsletter. There are recipes and house care tips among other items. The last newsletter had a recipe for Bow-Tie Lasagna and it looked really good to me. If I post it here, there is a much better chance I’ll make it.
4 oz. bow tie pasta
1 cup ricotta cheese
4 oz. soft-style cream cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
3/4 lb. lean ground beef
1 clove garlic minced
15-1/2 oz. jar of spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
2 T. grated Parmesan cheese
In a large saucepan cook pasta in boiling water for 10-12 minutes or just until tender.
Drain and set aside. In a medium mixing bowl stir together ricotta, cream cheese, mozzarella, Parmesan and Italian seasoning. Set aside.
Preheat wok or large skillet over high heat.
Stir fry ground beef and garlic until meat is brown. Pour off any fat. Stir in spaghetti sauce and cooked noodles.
Spoon cheese and seasoning mix over meat and noodles. Do not stir.
Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and parmesan.
Cover and cook about 5 minutes or until heated thoroughly.
Makes 4 servings.
