Bow Tie Pasta Lasagna
This is a great tasting lasagna where I’m using bow tie pasta instead of the lasagna noodles that are in a standard lasagna recipe. My bow tie pasta lasagna uses the same ingredients that are in my Classic Lasagna except the pasta is different. You can substitute any style pasta in this recipe for lasagna noodles.
Who doesn’t love a delicious tasting pasta dish? If you are like me, anything pasta is to die for, especially if there is a ton of cheese in it like right here!
Having gobs of cheese is ideal when making this recipe! Just spooning this bow tie pasta lasagna into a bowl, or onto a plate, you will see the cheese doing what it does best in a recipe like this. Ooey, gooey cheesy goodness! Yum!
Making this bow tie pasta lasagna isn’t hard. It’s fairly easy to make and tastes AMAZING! Even the little kiddos will love this meal. The mini bow tie pasta I used is the perfect size for even the littlest eaters.
Tasty and delicious is how I would describe this meal! Just add a salad and some garlic bread and you will have yourself an amazing dinner! This makes great leftovers too! Me and my leftovers! Like I’ve said in my last post, I cook so much food and always have leftovers. The girls at work are going to love this when I go back!
I hope you all enjoy this bow tie pasta lasagna!
