Italian Bowtie Bake

Serves: 4

8 oz. bow tie pasta, uncooked
2 c. spaghetti sauce
1 envelope (minus 2 teaspoons) Italian salad dressing mix
2 c. (8 oz.) Mozzarella cheese, shredded

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. In a bowl, combine the spaghetti sauce and salad dressing mix; add pasta and toss to coat. Transfer to a greased shallow 2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove cover and bake for 5 minutes more or until heated through.

Tips: This bowtie casserole is quick and easy to put together and uses ingredients you probably have already. I do suggest using less than the whole envelope of Italian dressing mix. The whole package was a bit overwhelming the first time I made it. If this isn't quite what you're looking for check out the Cheesy Bowtie Bake instead.
