Bowtie Skillet Lasagna

BeefItalianKid-FriendlyMain CoursePasta

 

   I’ve decided there are a few recipes on the blog that deserve a ‘re-do’. When I go through some of the very first recipes I blogged, I can’t help but cringe at the pictures. In no way am I saying I’m a professional food photographer now, but I’ve definitely learned a few things about ‘what not to do’ when photographing food.

Taking a picture of lasagna at 8:00 pm with the flash on, is one of them…

   This Bowtie Skillet Lasagna was one of those recipes begging for a new picture. This is a delicious meal and a family favorite of ours! My kids love this. It’s really comforting and always hits the spot. It’s another one of those meals you can have ready in under 30 minutes. Perfect for busy weeknights!

  1. I think this shot looks great!!! I know what you mean though…I cringe at some of my first food posts:-) It is fun to look back though and see how far we have come!!!

  2. Holly, this sounds like a delicious family meal. I know my mine would love this. It has been bookmarked. have a wonderful day. Blessings…Mary

  3. I could have written that first paragraph! I cringe when I look back at the photos from my first year of blogging 🙂 This simple and delicious dish was certainly worthy of a re-do!

  4. Cortney, I don’t think it adds a lot of sour cream taste, it’s mainly to add creaminess to the lasagna. Maybe you could substitute ricotta cheese, or even greek yogurt!?

  5. MMMM, this was so good and easy! I will definitely be making it regularly since all five of us enjoyed it. Thanks for your awesome blog 🙂

  6. This was ok. It did lack in taste. Maybe more seasonings and it would taste better. It’s easy and not bad so it works for a quick dinner.

  7. I made this a few nights ago and it went like this:
    son – ate it but didn’t go back for more like he normally would
    daughter – “I don’t like it”
    husband – ate half his full plate which he’d normally eat all of
    me – It was okay. nothing special in my book unfortunately.

  8. Hi there! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone!
    Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog
    and look forward to all your posts! Carry on the outstanding work!
