Reviews for Four-Cheese Bow Ties
"I have made this several times and my entire family loves it. I add grilled chicken cut into cubes to make it a main dish as well as add chopped spinach. I don't like blue cheese so I leave it out and it still comes out great! other variations I've tried, add Italian sausage with a package of taco seasoning for a Mexican meets Itialian dish."
"This is a delicious, elegant but simple to make recipe that even works for company. It goes nicely with parnesan knots and an Italian tossed salad. My kids cheer when I tell them that I am making this dish! EXCELLENT!"
"I love this recipe! It's so amazingly cheesy!"
