Cheeseburgers and pasta combined into one casserole. It's like a heart attack waiting to happen. But it's a delicious heart attack waiting to happen!
I am addicted to Pinterest. Seriously. You can probably find me avoiding my responsibilities (like doing homework, doing chores, or keeping up with my blog) by browsing Pinterest for hours. I especially love the recipes that I find; it's actually where I found the inspiration for this recipe.
You can view the original recipe here.
Start off your "heart attack waiting to happen" recipe by browning a pound of hamburger, one chopped onion, and garlic (either one clove or 1 tsp of Tastefully Simple's Garlic Garlic) in a skillet. When the burger is brown and the onions are transparent, drain the grease (if needed).
Boil 8 oz of rotini noodles by following the directions on the box (approximately 10 minutes). Once al dente, set aside.
Add 1 tsp of seasoned salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 2 tbsp of ketchup, and 2 tbsp Dijon mustard to the skillet. Stir until combined, and then add 15 oz of tomato sauce. Bring to a boil and then simmer on warm for about 5 minutes.
Stir the noodles into the burger mixture, then transfer to a greased baking dish. Top with 1 - 1.5 cup shredded cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
