Here’s a fusion of two all-time favourite comfort foods—cheeseburgers and pasta! Think juicy ground beef and comforting noodles in an irresistible cheesy sauce. Check out our Sauces & Condiments and top it off with your favourite burger fixings. Serve with a side salad—you'll have plenty of time to prep your greens while this one-dish dinner simmers on the stovetop.
Serve with 2 cups leafy greens and 1 tbsp Epicure Dressing.
2 cups hot water
1 lb (450 g) lean ground beef
2 tbsp ketchup
2 cups uncooked fusilli or bite-size pasta
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1⁄3 cup milk, your choice
Topping (optional): diced tomato, shredded lettuce, pickles
- Whisk seasoning with hot water. Set aside.
- In Sauté Pan, cook ground beef over medium-high heat until browned, using Ground Meat Separator to break up chunks. Drain excess liquid. Stir in ketchup to coat meat.
- Add in reserved seasoning mixture and pasta. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15–17 min, or until pasta is tender.
- Stir in cheese and milk. Continue to simmer; stir until cheese melts and sauce is well combined. Add toppings, if desired.
For a vegan dish, use dairy-free cheese, oat milk, and ground round.
