This quick recipe tastes just like lasagna, but you make it on the stove. It’s very tasty and is always a hit with my family.
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- 14-1/2 oz. can diced tomatoes
- 1-1/2 cups water
- 6-oz. can tomato paste
- 3 Tablespoons Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2-1/2 cups bowtie pasta, uncooked
- 3/4 cup small-curd cottage cheese
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Brown ground beef with onion and garlic in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat; drain.
Add tomatoes with juice, water, tomato paste and seasonings; mix well.
Stir in uncooked pasta; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes, until pasta is tender, stirring occasionally.
Combine cheeses in a bowl; drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto pasta mixture. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
