Creamy Pasta Casserole

Creamy Pasta Casserole
  • 1 (12 ounce) package farfalle (bow tie) pasta
  • 1/2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (24 ounce) jar pasta sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain and return pasta to pot. Melt cream cheese into the pasta. Stir pasta sauce, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes into the pasta mixture.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Break ground beef into small pieces and add to the skillet; cook and stir until some of the fat has rendered, 2 to 3 minutes. Add onion and garlic to the beef, continue cooking until the ground beef is completely browned, about 5 minutes more. Stir beef mixture into the pasta mixture.
  4. Pour pasta-and-beef mixture into a 3-quart casserole dish. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the dish.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until the mozzarella cheese melts, 5 to 10 minutes.
