Recipe Collection: Cheeseburger Pasta

admin December 9, 2020

As a kid, I used to love Hamburger Helper.  But these days, just read the ingredients on that box…ick.  No thanks.

Still, I love one-dish meals.  Quick…easy…delicious…what’s not to enjoy?  Especially during the cooler months.

I make this cheeseburger pasta as a quick lunch or dinner.  My boys especially love it (and my 11-year-old can eat a lot now…).  We add some steamed broccoli and fresh fruit on the side and it’s a balanced, healthy meal.  Winning!

Recipe Collection: Cheeseburger Pasta


  • 1 lb. ground beef (I chose grass-fed for its health benefits)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 – 4 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
  • 4 cups chicken or beef stock (here’s how to make homemade)
  • 1 lb. pasta (I use gluten-free; whole wheat also works)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tbsp. arrowroot powder
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Salt to taste

Step 1: Cook the ground beef in a large skillet until brown (I use my 12″ enameled cast iron)

Step 2: Add the onion and garlic and cook a few more minutes

Step 3: Sprinkle with a little salt and add stock; bring to a boil

Step 4: Add the pasta, and cook, stirring frequently

Step 5: Mix the arrowroot and milk in a measuring cup until smooth

Step 6: Pour the milk mix into the pasta mix and stir constantly until a thick sauce forms

Step 7: Add the cheddar and stir until melted and smooth

That’s it!  Enjoy. 🙂
