Updated October 5, 2016

Ingredients

  • 8
    oz uncooked farfalle pasta (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 1
    lb ground beef
  • 1
    can (15 oz) Muir Glen™ organic tomato sauce
  • 1/2
    teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4
    teaspoon black pepper
  • 1
    cup sour cream
  • 1
    cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2
    cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4
    cup sliced green onions
  • 1 1/2
    cups shredded Cheddar cheese (12 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch baking dish or 2 1/2 to 3-quart casserole with cooking spray. Cook pasta until al dente, about 11 minutes; drain, and set aside.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomato sauce, garlic salt and pepper; cover and simmer 2 to 3 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  • 3
    In large bowl, mix sour cream, cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese and 1/2 cup of the green onions; stir in cooked pasta.
  • 4
    Spoon half of the pasta mixture into baking dish. Top with half of the beef mixture and 3/4 cup of the Cheddar cheese. Repeat with pasta mixture, beef mixture and remaining 3/4 cup Cheddar cheese. Bake uncovered 25 to 30 minutes or until mixture is thoroughly heated and cheese is melted. Top with remaining 1/4 cup green onions, and serve.

  • Wide egg noodles or mafalda pasta would also work in this recipe.
  • Stir 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper into beef mixture for a spicy kick.
