Garlic Parmesan Bow Ties

This really is the perfect side dish for any meat you cook.

Actually, my grandson Antonio loves his pasta anyway we make it.

Everyone likes an occasional tomato sauce less pasta and this one plain is easy to make, fun shape to eat and even great heated up the next day.

I like to keep this on hand for leftover chili to pour over too!

Think about the possibilities with any kinds of gravy and meat leftovers on top of this pasta, it's the perfect second meal!
