Description

Cheeseburger pasta is exactly what it sounds like. Everything that goes on top of burger, but inside some pasta instead.


Ingredients

Scale
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef 95% FF
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce 
  • 1 (28-ounce) can Crushed Tomatoes
  • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 2 cups beef broth or stock 
  • 1/4 cup reduced sugar ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1 pound rotini pasta
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (Fat free)
  • 1 Roma tomato, diced
  • 2 green onions, sliced

Instructions

  1. Spray a large stockpot or Dutch oven with cooking spray over medium high heat. Add ground beef and onion and cook until beef has browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Drain excess fat. Add the onion powder, garlic powder, and Worcestershire Sauce to the pan. 
  2. Stir in tomatoes, tomato sauce,  beef broth, ketchup, mustard, pasta, and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer until pasta is cooked through, about 13-16 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and top with cheese. Cover until cheese has melted, about 2 minutes.
  4. Serve immediately, garnished with tomato and green onions, if desired.
  5. Serving size: 1 1/2 cups. 

Notes

If you don't want to use olive oil to cook the onions, use cooking spray.
