Day 123: Italian Bowtie Supper

Serves 6
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
16 oz tomato sauce
14 1/2 oz diced stewed tomatoes
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
16 oz bow tie pasta, cooked and drained (I used macaroni and rotini)
10 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
6 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

In skillet, cook beef, onion, and garlic over medium heat until meat is not longer pink; drain. Transferto a slow cooker. Stir in the tomato sauce, tomatoes and seasonings. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or until bubbly.

Increase heat to high; stir in pasta, spinach and cheeses. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until heated through and the cheese is melted.


This was a simple meal to make, especially since I had the ground beef already cooked. I really enjoyed the spinach element and my family loved this as well. I used macaroni because that is what I had on hand. 4 stars.
