Reviews for Bow Tie Beef Skillet
"I make this often and the family enjoys it. I do feel it's missing a little something. Maybe I'll try the hot sausage as one reader suggested."
"Made this in the Fall when we had lots of summer squash. So easy & my whole family loved it. I used the brick Parmesan cheese that I shredded myself. It tastes so much fresher. A 5 star review from me."
"Wonderful recipe. I used 1 yellow squash and 1 zucchini and ramano cheese instead. My family all loved it and it was quick, easy and delicious!"
"Loved it! Didn't use the cheese (not a fan) other than that followed exactly!!"
"I make this recipe all the time and my family absolutely loves it. I often use hot sausage instead of hamburger because we like spicy foods. I also add fresh mushrooms. The best part is that it only requires washing one dish!"
