One Skillet Cheeseburger Casserole
makes 8 servings
1 T EVOO
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 onion, diced
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 28oz can whole peeled tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 8oz can tomato sauce
2 C chicken broth
1/4 C ketchup
2 T dijon mustard
1 lb rotini pasta
2 C shredded cheddar cheese
1 plum tomato, diced
2 green onion, diced
1. Heat EVOO in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add ground beef and onion and cook through until ground beef is no longer pink, and is browned everywhere (crusty brown in some places is good, too). Season with salt and pepper. Drain any excess juices/fat from pan.
2. Immediately stir in tomatoes, tomato sauce, chicken broth, ketchup, mustard, pasta (raw, uncooked), and 2 cups of water. Bring the entire mixture to a boil, cover, and then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until pasta is al dente, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and top with all the cheese. Cover with a lid until cheese is completely melted, about 1-2 minutes. Top with tomato, *bacon, and green onions. Serve immediately.
*I didn’t try this with bacon, but completely wish I had! It sounds amazing!
