Bowtie Skillet Lasagna will become your family’s favorite way to enjoy a delicious lasagna meal. From start to finish you can have dinner on the table in under 30 minutes!

Bowtie Skillet Lasagna has all the traditional lasagna ingredients but is made with bowtie noodles and is cooked in a skillet.

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!

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

  4. I made this last night and it was really good and so easy! It just needs more seasoning imo, at least for this southern girl and her family. Heh.

  5. 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!?

  6. 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 πŸ™‚
