Reviews for Skillet Bow Tie Lasagna
"My 6 year old loves this dish! This is a great go to weeknight meal and it freezes really well too."
"We love this! Always good!"
"One of my grandson's favorite. It's always the first thing they request for dinner and if they could, they would eat it every day!"
"This is delicious. The 4 star rating was only due to having to make a few adjustments to the liquid level. I'd read from a previous reviewer that the 1 1/2 c of water wasn't sufficient and she was right! Instead of adding more water, I added 1 c of organic beef stock and 1 c of pre-made spaghetti sauce I already had in the fridge. I felt it would make the sauce richer and it definitely did! I also added 3 c of the bow tie pasta instead of 2 1/2. Additionally, I mixed the cottage cheese/Parmesan mixture with about 1/3 c of light sour cream. After placing the spoonfuls of the mixture on top of the dish, I also added fresh shaved Parmesan over the entire top, then covered and let it cook an additional 10 minutes. Absolutely yummy! My family went crazy over it! I know it sounds like a lot of extra tweaking, but this is something I do so often, it just seemed natural to me."
"This recipe has been a family favorite for years! I like it because it's easy to make and tastes just like oven-baked lasagna."
