Turkey Bow-Tie Casserole


A super easy, yummy, kid-friendly pasta casserole. My little sister and I were making lunch when we made up this casserole. She doesn't like hamburger, but she is a huge pasta and turkey fan. It goes together really quickly if one person makes the turkey part and another person makes the noodle part. Refrigerate leftovers.

1 medium-sized casserole


  • 2 ½ cups farfalle (bow-tie) pasta

  • 1 pound ground turkey

  • ¾ cup ketchup, or to taste

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning blend

  • 1 pinch garlic salt

  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • ¾ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground turkey in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes.

  3. Reduce heat to low and add ketchup, brown sugar, Italian seasoning, and garlic salt. Let simmer for 1 to 2 minutes; remove from heat and cover.

  4. Drain cooked pasta and pour into a medium casserole dish. Stir in mozzarella cheese, Cheddar cheese, and poppy seeds. Spread turkey mixture on top and serve.
