Bats and Cobwebs

Recipe by  

"We make this for Halloween every year at my son's request! It's like spaghetti using bow-tie pasta! It is mixed together with mozzarella cheese cubes and baked in the oven. The bow-tie pasta is the bats and the stringy, gooey mozzarella cheese is the cobwebs!"

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water, bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Stir in the bow tie pasta and return to a boil. Boil pasta, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well.
  3. Cook and stir ground beef and onion in a large skillet until beef is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Drain fat. Stir in pasta sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer.
  4. Stir cooked pasta and half of the mozzarella cheese into the sauce; toss to combine. Transfer to a 2-quart baking dish. Top with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned and bubbly, 15 to 20 minutes.

This was a big hit with the kids and the Husband. I used Ragu Original and think a nicetouch to it would be to add some olives and mushrooms.

This was tasty but to me all it was is Hamburger Helper with a zing.

I didn't actually make this but I've made recipies like this with penne so I know it's great, and just the idea of using bowties and calling it bats and cobwebs makes it a 5 star! What a cute idea!!

This was really great! Reminded me of Lasagna only better! I used Classico Tomato & Basil for the sauce as I always do and this was perfectly spiced

Thisd gets 4 stars just for being such a great idea. My kids loved it and it is now a Halloween favourite. It is tasty, but the flavour depends wholelyn the bottled sauce that you buy. Thanks for sharing such a cute idea.

Great recipe. I also added two cloves of chopped garlic and a can of chopped tomatoes. Everyone (including the picky eaters) loved it.

Fantastic! It tastes almost like lasagna, but is so much easier to make. I used dehydrated minced onion, a little garlic, and just basic Hunt's spaghetti sauce. My husband and two teenage boys loved it. I will definitely be adding this to my list of favorites
