Cheeseburger Pasta Bake

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

A quick and easy-to-make Cheeseburger Pasta Bake recipe that teams the tastiness of a beef burger with the comfort of a pasta bake – and of course, lots of cheese!

I have been making very healthy meal choices lately, but I think it’s fair to make something a little naughty every now and then, and this Cheeseburger Pasta Bake is exactly that… very naughty, and it smells and tastes just like a cheeseburger!

This Cheeseburger Pasta Bake is very simple to make. It’s simply a matter of cooking the mince, onion and garlic in a pan. I then add the carrots, mustard and tomatoes.

This mixture is added to the pasta, popped into an oven-proof dish, then topped with breadcrumbs and cheese before putting into the oven.

Pasta bakes are a meal that I can easily make through the day, pop in the fridge, head out to sports in the evening and when I get home I simply put them in the oven. The kids will shower and by the time they are finished dinner is ready.
