Who doesn’t love delicious hamburger meat, melted cheese and lots of pasta noodles? This skillet cheeseburger pasta casserole has all the workings of a good cheeseburger and you will not believe how easy it is!

Everything gets cooked in the skillet including the pasta so that you don’t have to switch on the oven in this heat. Because who wants to do that these days – not me! I’d rather be sitting on the porch, putting my feet up, spooning some cheeseburger pasta in my mouth and having some chilled iced tea!

This pasta is really like the All American Burger but without all the fat, or any effort. It’s almost as quick as picking up takeaway, but much healthier because you are making this at home.

Top it up with some pickles or jalapenos. I also love adding bell peppers sometimes. You can get as creative as you want with it!
