Cheeseburger Casserole

So I am going to post the recipe first, and then I will tell you what I did different and what I PLAN on doing different next time…


1 lb ground beef ( I use turkey because its cheaper and better for you)

2 peppers any color chopped

1/2 cup onion

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

2 cups elbow macaroni noodles

mushroom if desired


Cook and season beef until browned. Add onions and pepper and cook until crispy. Bring noodles to boil and then drain. Mix all ingredients together and spread in a 8×12 baking dish. Sprinkle top with cheese and bake at 350 for 30 min.

Now what I did was add sliced tomato on the top of the meat and pasta mixture and then sprinkled the cheese on top of the tomato. I used both cheddar and mozzarella cheese and it was delicious. I also put it into a 9×13 pan. NEXT time I make the recipe I will be adding a can of tomato sauce to the meat, onions, and peppers because it was a bit dry. Since it is supposed to represent a cheeseburger I figure the tomato sauce and tomato slices would be delicious!!!

Enjoy and here is a picture of the finished project!
