Even my pickiest eater came back for seconds!

Easy Cheeseburger Pasta Skillet Recipe:

  • Start by browning a pound of ground beef in a skillet with some diced onion and garlic powder.
  • Once browned and crumbled, drain any fat and return skillet to the stove top.
  • Stir in some flour and paprika until thick, then gradually whisk in some beef broth and milk.
  • Add in the uncooked noodles (yup, even the noodles get cooked in the same pan!), and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Cover the pan, but leave it slightly ajar to allow steam to escape and cook on a simmer until the noodles are tender.

Brown the ground beef and then whisk in some flour and paprika until thickened.

Cheeseburger Pasta Recipe Tips and Variations:

  • This recipe calls for dried rotini pasta, but you can use any type of small pasta like macaroni, shells, etc.
  • I use a sharp cheddar cheese at the end, but you can substitute in mild cheddar or colby-jack cheese.
  • Try using ground turkey in place of the ground beef!
  • Make sure the mixture comes to a boil after you add the pasta, THEN reduce the heat to a simmer and allow the pasta to get tender.

Once the pasta is tender add in the cheese and stir until it's fully incorporated into the sauce! An easy weeknight dinner that the whole family will love!

    Shawn, do you have or considered a regular cookbook of your wonderful recipes because I would be the first to purchase a copy! I’m older and don’t have a printer; it would be really nice for me to have these recipes in my hands the old fashioned way!!
    Thanks; God Bless,
