Reviews for Vegetable Beef Bow Tie Skillet
"This is one of my family's favorite late summer meals when I have garden product! I add yellow squash to this too and use the mini bowtie pastas. Even my kids love this!"
"added some minced garlic to beef & onion! delicious! will leave out salt though next time or use reduced sodium broth."
"Substituted asparagus and sugar snap peas for the zucchini & yellow pepper. The kids loved it!"
"My family loved this meal! It was a little more juicy like soup than a skillet but still awesome, full of flavor."
"Made this last night and the whole family loved it! Great flavor and very easy. I ended up not having any fresh tomatoes, so I drained a can of diced tomatoes and tossed those in. It still came out great."
"Great recipe. My husband loved it. The only thing I did different was the cheese. I used low fat Mexican blend."
"Loved this recipe although it was a little soupy. I will probably keep everything the same next time but up the bowties to 2 cups."
"I substituted extra Italian and seasoning in place of the chili powder & it was excellent!"
"Kids loved it and me too. Will do it again, first time I was cooking with Zucchinis and the kids loved it"
"The seasoning in this receipe is so good and it's such a verstile dish. I used the veggie spiral pasta (that's all I had) and used carrots, corn, green beans and peas in place of the zuchini or squash, as my husband won't eat them."
