Shop the Sale: Lasagna Pasta


I have not made Italian food in a long time, at least not the variety with pastas and sauces. That’s a very different thing than the lighter fare that comes from the Mediterranean side of the country. That’s one of the things that makes Italy so entrancing: every region has a very distinct culinary style. The layered pastas tend to come more from the southern portion of the country.

While this isn’t a true lasagna, it definitely reminds you of a lasagna when you eat it. A few websites I cross-referenced claim this is a recipe from a weight-loss program, but I couldn’t confirm that.

Either way, you get the taste of lasagna without all the calories. In addition, you get a great deal because ground chuck is on sale this week at Brookshire’s.

Lasagna Pasta

Ingredients:
1 lb bowtie pasta, uncooked
1 Tbs olive oil
1 lb ground chuck
1 jar spaghetti sauce (or 3 cups homemade sauce)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 (heaping) tsp Italian seasoning
1 cup mozzarella, shredded
1 cup sour cream

Directions:
Boil pasta in large pot of salted water until al dente; drain. In large skillet, brown and crumble ground chuck until fully cooked; drain fat and return to pan. Pour cooked pasta on top of meat, then drizzle olive oil on top. Pour jar of sauce, salt, garlic powder and Italian seasonings on top of pasta. Stir pasta. Add cheese and sour cream. Stir over low heat until cheese is melted and all ingredients are combined. Taste for seasoning, and add salt and pepper, if necessary. Serve with parmesan or additional mozzarella, if desired.
