    KateL's Note:

    Tasty, yet simple, and easy to digest, this is my elderly Mom's favorite casserole. I adapted it from Johnny Marzetti in Jean Anderson's "The American Century Cookbook". My Mom asked me to double the mushrooms; the baby Portabella mushrooms available at Costo or Sam's are a hit in this casserole. Use low-sodium tomato sauce and Cabot's cheese to reduce the amount of sodium. Anyone else can slash my preparation time, I am "the slowest chopper in the Western Hemisphere."

    My Private Note


    Serves: 6



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place the farfalle (aka bow ties) into the pot, cook 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    3. 3
      Lightly grease 11 x 7 x 2-inch baking dish (or two 8x8-inch pans) and set aside.
    4. 4
      Heat olive oil in a very large heavy skillet over moderate heat 1 minute.
    5. 5
      Add onion and garlic. Stir-fry until limp, about 3 minutes.
    6. 6
      Add mushrooms and stir-fry until juices are released and evaporate, about 5 minutes.
    7. 7
      Add beef and cook and stir, breaking up clumps, until no longer red, about 5 minutes.
    8. 8
      I usually drain the beef mixture in a fine mesh colander due to the volume of high water content onions and mushrooms.
    9. 9
      Off heat, mix in tomato sauce and all but 1 cup cheese.
    10. 10
      Transfer to baking dish, add bow ties, and toss gently but thoroughly to mix.
    11. 11
      Scatter remaining 1 cup cheese on top. (Add grated parmesan cheese if more is needed.).
    12. 12
      Bake, uncovered, until browned and bubbling, 35-40 minutes, and serve.

      I will be honest at first I thought this was going to be bland since there are no spices or herbs but resisted the urge to add anything except fresh cracked pepper. WELL as I was trying to take photos my DH took the first bite and he groaned with joy. I used ground turkey and elbow macaroni. It does make alot so we have tons leftover LOL. I used a combo of old and mild cheddar and some asiago on top. Very tasty and a great meal when you are serving people who don't like alot of spices . I served it with garlic bread and a simple tomatoe and mozzarella salad. Will make again. Made for PAC spring 2009
