Bowtie Skillet Lasagna

In our family, we all love pasta. I mean we all really LOVE pasta. Add some yummy sauce and gooey cheese, and we are all happy.

In an effort to make some dishes easier, I came up with this one skillet lasagna. You do have to dirty a pot to boil the bowtie noodles, but the rest of the dish is all in one skillet. ;)

Bowtie Skillet Lasagna

Bowtie Skillet Lasagna


  • 1- 12oz box bowtie pasta
  • 1 pound ground beef, optional (can make this dish vegetarian simply by leaving this out)
  • 2 TB olive oil
  • 4 cups spaghetti sauce
  • 2 ts garlic powder
  • 2 ts Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, divided in half
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • sprinkle of parsley


  1. Heat large pot of water, salt liberally, boil pasta, set aside.
  2. Brown ground beef (if using). Add 1 ts each of garlic powder and Italian seasoning, along with a dash of salt and pepper.
  3. While meat is cooking, combine 1/2 of mozzarella cheese, sour cream, cream cheese, and Parmesan cheese. Set aside.
  4. Once meat is browned, add olive oil (unless excess fat remains from meat. I use our own grass-fed ground beef, so there is not much fat left over from frying).
  5. Add spaghetti sauce, heat through on medium heat.
  6. Turn heat off.
  7. Add cheese mixture, stir lightly.
  8. Add bowtie pasta, stir to combine.
  9. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese.
  10. Sprinkle with parsley.
  11. Cover to melt cheeses.
  12. Enjoy!

If you are taking this dish to a potluck, I’d recommend under cooking the pasta a bit and add a bit more sauce. This way, the pasta will cook a bit more with the extra sauce.
