Why do we need to bake it for 35 minutes after it’s already cooked through? I added water in the summer stage to the tomato sauce to keep it from drying out.
First time I made this I made exactly as written. I made it a 2nd. time with some changes because I thought it needed more flavor. I used mild Italian sausage instead of ground beef, added some chopped pepperoni and sliced black olives. I did not put this in the oven. After browning the sausage and onion and green pepper I added the spices and tomato sauce. Simmered for about 20 minutes; covered. Added the pepperoni and olives, stirred. About 10 minutes before serving I added the cooked bow ties. It was more to our liking. My wife said the pepperoni made it a lot better. I agree, also the Italian sausage in place of the ground beef. This is a keeper for us.
Great! Will make again. Easy directions. Used fresh onion, chopped but did not use onion powder.
I made this for dinner tonight but I used Italian sausage instead of hamburger and my husband and I both agree that it def gave more flavor either the sausage. It was very good will make again.
I made this using Italian sausage and it was great. My husband loved it.
This is a great dish for a busy night and satisfies our need for good pasta with a mellow "not too tomatoe-ee" flavor. You can tweak as needed for spicier or not...love it!
A little cayenne and this is the bees knees.
Pretty standard baked pasta dish. Very simple to tweak to any family's liking. My husband doesn't like red sauce of any kind so I use an alfredo/ white sauce instead. I love baked pasta either way. Win/Win!
