Easy Weeknight Bowtie Pasta

 Happy Wednesday!  The week is almost over.  We can make it :)  Friday is a holiday here in Utah and I have the day off work!!!  I soooooo need a day off. 

For now, lets just make it through the next few days.  This bowtie pasta is one of my go-to dinners for busy weeknights and it tastes just as good leftover.  Have you ever added cottage cheese to spaghetti sauce?  Try it.  Seriously.  It's SO GOOD - it makes the sauce extra creamy and adds protein.
