One-Pot Cheeseburger Pasta

I am scrolling through Facebook the other day, and came across this Tasty post with four different meals you can do with hamburger.  We are stretched a little tighter this time of year, and we have hamburger in the freezer so I thought I would give it a go.

You can see the preparation and original post here at Tasty One-Pot Cheeseburger Pasta.

Ingredients

for 6 servings

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 16 oz fusilli pasta
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup milk
  • green onion, sliced, to serve
 Preparation

  1. In a large pot over a medium heat, add ground beef, onions, garlic, salt, pepper, worcestershire sauce, and ketchup. Break up the beef to incorporate the seasonings and cook until browned.
  2. Pour in the beef broth and bring to a simmer.
  3. Add the pasta and simmer for 20 minutes or until the pasta is cooked throughout and the broth has cooked down.
  4. Pour in the milk and cheese. Stir until the cheese has melted.
  5. Serve garnished with some sliced green onions
  6. Enjoy!

I used chickpea pasta instead of regular pasta – and that was my only substitution.

It was a hit!  Stephen loved it, as did David.  I could eat 3/4’s of a cup.  Not bad really since it is with protein pasta.  I think the flavors needed more a kick, but the boys liked it so that is really all that matters.

Blessings!
