One-Pot Sour Cream Lasagna

Italian food. Need I say more? It's filling, cheap and absolutely divine. My heart loves it; my thighs rebel. I once worked with a woman who had 8 kids, and she told me something that stuck with me from that day on. She said, "I serve potatoes, bread or pasta at every single meal — sometimes all three together. It's cheap, and it fills ya' up." Tim has been begging me to come up with some new recipes, and I threw this together on a whim. It took a total of 15 minutes and I had all but one ingredient in my very own pantry.

  • 1 box of bowtie pasta
  • 1/2 lb. ground beef
  • Olive oil
  • 1 can pasta sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Throw the pasta into a pot of boiling water. Let it sit until cooked.
  • Brown ground beef in large pan over high heat. Once cooked, add garlic powder and Italian seasoning
  • Drain ground beef when it's thoroughly cooked. Put back in skillet.
  • Add cooked pasta
  • Add about 1/4 cup olive oil and mix
  • Pour in entire can of pasta sauce and combine well
  • Add shredded mozzarella cheese and sour cream
    • For the record, you can get a block of fresh mozzarella cheese for about the same price as a large bag of it shredded. I find the block tastes so much better. Go for it.
  • Keep heat on medium, stirring constantly. Let it warm all the way through.
  • Serve with salad and some fresh sourdough bread
I feel confident in saying that this will become a new staple for your family dinners. I also feel confident that if I can type all this out in less than 5 minutes, you can cook it in less than 15 minutes.

Love and simplicity,
