Original recipe yields 8 servings


  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.

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



Good. Nothing exceptional. I added a lot more seasoning.

This is a simple recipe for yummy comfort food. I subbed basil for the Italian Seasoning since I'm not an oregano fan. I also used a combination of mozzarella and provolone for the topping. I halved the recipe and used enough cheese to cover the top. It was a good quick lunch for me today. I think with some tweaking this could be outstanding. The pasta sauce you use would be a big difference in the outcome. I can't wait to use my homemade sauce with sausage for the next time I make this. Thanks.
