“This is a quick and delicious way to get kids to eat spinach! Ground beef and tomato sauce are layered in a casserole with spinach and mozzarella cheese.”

Ingredients

1 pound ground beef

1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce

1 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon dried thyme

3 1/2 cups farfalle (bow tie) pasta, uncooked

1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bring a pan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes.

Crumble ground beef into a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring constantly until evenly browned. Drain excess grease, and stir in the tomato sauce, sour cream and thyme.

Place the cooked pasta into the bottom of a 2 quart casserole dish. Pour the ground beef mixture over the pasta. Cover with a layer of spinach. Top with shredded cheese.

Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until heated through and lightly browned on the top.
