Bow Tie Casserole

Recipe by Tish

This is definitely a freeze ahead recipe option. You can freeze after you put together and just heat from freezer for approx 20 additional minutes!

I found this very easy to make and it was well received by the whole family including a 3 and 6 year old. I freeze the pasta (prepared through step 4) in freezer bags. To prepare, I thaw and then proceed with steps 5 and 6. I use less total cheese and cover the portiuons the kids will eat more heavily with cheese and go lighter on the part my husband and I eat because it really does not need to much cheese to still taste great. I use lowfat sour cream as well. Thanks for a great recipe!!!
