Cheeseburger Pasta

This is my creation based on my husband’s love of those nasty boxed meals that all you need to do is add a pound of beef.  I am not naming names of the dinner HELPER.  But I don’t like the stuff and I can not figure out how it is healthy with vegetables.  So taking inspiration by the flavors available, I created this one.  AND I know mine is better, cheaper, and healthier.  And it freezes well.

Cheeseburger Pasta

  • 1 pound ground beef, cooked
  • 8 oz pasta, cooked
  • 1 c. chopped onion
  • 8 oz Velveeta cheese
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 TBSP Gourmet Steak Seasoning
  • 1 c. diced tomato
  • 1/2 c. shredded cheddar

Cook onions within the ground beef in skillet on med/high.  Stir in Velveeta, milk, garlic, and steak seasoning, until blended. Stir in pasta and tomatoes.  Sprinkle with shredded cheese and heat 2-3 minutes.

Again with the pasta, remember to undercook it, so it does not turn to mush in the freezer and re-heating process.  I will replace the fresh tomato with a can of diced tomatoes, when cooking in bulk.  I Mix it all together after the beef and onions were cooked and put it into a zip-lock for the freezer.
