My family always like those boxed "helper" dinners but I preferred to know exactly what I was putting into my meals so I made my own version of one of my families favorites. They love cheese, beef and pasta so I added a few ingredients and came up with a dish that they liked just as well and I knew exactly what they were eating. They love it with a fresh salad and hot bread sticks.

How to Make Cheesy Hamburger Pasta

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown the ground beef and onion; drain off excess grease if necessary. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add the garlic and salsa, stir to combine.
  3. Add the water, pasta and butter; stir to combine. Cover and let cook on medium-low heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until pasta is aldente (cooked but not soft or mushy). Stir occasionally to keep pasta from sticking or burning.
  4. Remove cover, add cheese and stir to combine. If the cheese is too thick, add a little more water or milk so it will be thick but creamy.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve with your favorite fresh salad and hot bread.
