Bow-Tie Lasagna

This Bow-Tie Lasagna is a recipe you can make when you don’t have a lot of time.  It is extremely easy, and you probably will have all the ingredients on hand.  Simply boil your pasta, cook your meat, and mix it all together with spaghetti sauce, Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and a little sour cream and you have a pipping hot, delicious meal right in front of you in less than 20 minutes.  
My husband has been craving lasagna, but I’ve yet to make one since they normally serve 8-10 servings, and it is just the two of us here at home.  My husband, Matt, is not big on leftovers either.  Thus, I usually halve every recipe I make.  This Bow-Tie Lasagna impressed Matt, sometimes a picky eater, in the fact that he does not like the “classics” altered in any way.  We both loved this, and will definitely make it again.  I used ground turkey instead of ground meat to save on fat and calories.  Matt, if you’re reading this…yes, it was ground turkey, not ground beef! haha 🙂  I can’t taste a difference between the two meats.  This recipe comes from the The Tasty Kitchen, a compilation of recipes set up and hosted by The Pioneer Woman.  Enjoy!
Boil your pasta according to package directions.

Brown your meat until it is no longer pink.
