  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain and return pasta to pot. Melt cream cheese into the pasta. Stir pasta sauce, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes into the pasta mixture.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Break ground beef into small pieces and add to the skillet; cook and stir until some of the fat has rendered, 2 to 3 minutes. Add onion and garlic to the beef, continue cooking until the ground beef is completely browned, about 5 minutes more. Stir beef mixture into the pasta mixture.
  4. Pour pasta-and-beef mixture into a 3-quart casserole dish. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the dish.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until the mozzarella cheese melts, 5 to 10 minutes.

Recipe Group Selection: 10, January 2015 ~ This was a nice dinner. I chose to use spaghetti noodles, as that is what I had on hand. Because we enjoy the taste of sauteed onions, I chopped rat...

Simple and delicious! The only thing I did differently was build it more like another casserole I make - I mixed the pasta and the cream cheese (and added some green onions for fun) and spread ...

Perfect meal for teen boys with a side of Italian Green Beans. Mid's jarred sauce is 32 oz which is perfect for a 16 oz box of pasta. Still used 1# of gr bf and it was plenty. Now we have leftov...

Recipe Group: This was nummy, the cream cheese adds a nice touch. Next time I may not bother to throw it in the oven though, unless I made it ahead like I did last night. I used mini farfalle be...

Made tonight for Recipe Group. I omitted the red pepper flakes (personal taste) and doubled the cheese, otherwise made as directed. Easy, quick and tasty.

My sons play sports, which means rushed dinner.... This is great and filling for boys!

Not bad, I season my ground beef the same way no matter what I'm using it for and so I did not find this lacking flavor!.

Soooo delicious! It was quick and simple to make, and tasted amazing. Thank you MNWILD!
