Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in ground pork, mushrooms, onion, garlic, basil, parsley, and paprika. Cook and stir until pork is cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Stir stewed tomatoes, cream of celery soup, and bay leaf into the pork mixture. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 12 to 14 minutes.

  • Stir cooked bow-tie pasta into tomato sauce, top with Parmesan cheese, and serve.

Cook's Note:

Substitute spices for fresh sprouts and stewed tomatoes for fresh tomatoes to make this meal extra healthy. I use ground pork, which reduces grease substantially.

If tomato sauce does not reach desired thickness after 12 minutes, whisk flour with cold water in a small bowl; slowly pour flour mixture into sauce, stirring constantly.

Well... this was pretty ho-hum so I added another half t basil &... well still not too impressed. It was edible but won't be a repeat. I made the mistake of not taking out the bay leaf in the leftovers. That didn't help either but my review is on first night taste which was "ok". A little red pepper helps most dishes. I'm not going to play with this one though. Read More
