Italian Bow Tie Bake

Served with a green salad and garlic bread, this is the easiest dinner I prepare for my family. They love the four-ingredient main dish and think I worked on it for hours. They don't even miss the meat! —Lisa Blackwell Henderson, North Carolina

    I made this for my grandson. I would use less cheese but my finicky grandson loved it, so thank you for the great kid proof recipe.

    Found the recipe today and decided to make it, It was very cheap to make and easy. Made enough for 2 - 3 people. Depending on how hungry you are. One tip would be to add chicken and/or beef to the sauce. Other then that, A +
