Cheeseburger Casserole Review.
I made the Skinnytaste’s cheeseburger casserole last night. It turned out fantastic. Such a keeper.
I only made a few subs. I used 1 pound of lean ground turkey instead of beef- 4 cheese instead of cheddar- and instead of 1.5 cups of onions I used 1 cup onion, 2 garlic cloves, and 1/4 sliced jalapeno. I also used pasta with extra fiber for a little boost of nutrition.
2 cups of rotini pasta.
2 cups of cheese.
Cook pasta in salted water to al dente. Drain and set aside. Preheat oven to 350.
Add 2 tsp’s of oil to a medium hot pan. Add onion mixture. Cook until soft about five minutes.
Add meat to pan and stir. Cook until mostly brown. Add a bit of sea salt and pepper to taste.
Add 2 tbsp’s of tomato paste. Stir.
Add diced tomatoes. 1 can.
Add 2 tbsp’s of dijon mustard.
Let cook for two minutes and start to bubble.
Mix together with pasta.
Top with cheese. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Add 1/4 cup chopped of chopped dill pickles.
Delish!! It really tastes like a cheeseburger! The best thing is this makes 9 servings. So many leftovers!! I would give this recipe a 8.5 out of 10! Here are the nutritional stats- Calories: 261 • Fat: 9 g • Protein: 21.5 g • Carb: 21.5 g • Fiber: 2 g • Sugar: 3 g Sodium: 468.5 mg
