Southern Creamy Bow Tie Pasta

It's definitely a "go to" side dish when you are in a hurry.  It's so perfect weather you're making chicken, beef, pork or even fish.  The bow tie pasta gives it the perfect texture and the sour cream gives it the unforgettable flavor.  It makes a great afternoon lunch just by itself too.  Best of all it is so easy it will be on the table in 15 minutes.  My only suggestion is be sure to make plenty.  My family always wants more.  This recipe serves four.

2 Cups Un-cooked Bow Tie Pasta
3 Cups Cold water
1/4 Cup Minced Onion
1/4 Cup Sour Cream
2 Tablespoons Chopped Green Chilies

Cook Pasta according to directions in cold water.  Usually 10 minuts at a good boil will do the trick. They should be nice and firm not not crunchy. Drain but DO NOT rinse.  While pasta is cooling add remaining ingredients to pan and let simmer on low until onion is tender. Add a couple tablespoons of water to keep it from sticking  if you need to.  Add pasta back to pan and gently stir.  Now step back and watch the family enjoy!
