Cheeseburger Casserole Review.


I made the Skinnytaste’s cheeseburger casserole last night. It turned out fantastic. Such a keeper.

cb1 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.

cb22 cups of rotini pasta.

cb42 cups of cheese.

cb5Cook pasta in salted water to al dente. Drain and set aside. Preheat oven to 350.

cb3Add 2 tsp’s of oil to a medium hot pan. Add onion mixture. Cook until soft about five minutes.

cb6 Add meat to pan and stir. Cook until mostly brown. Add a bit of sea salt and pepper to taste.

cb7 Add 2 tbsp’s of tomato paste. Stir.

cb8 Add diced tomatoes. 1 can.

cb9 Add 2 tbsp’s of dijon mustard.

cb10 Let cook for two minutes and start to bubble.

cb12 Mix together with pasta.

cb13 Top with cheese. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.

cb14 Add 1/4 cup chopped  of chopped dill pickles.

cb15 Finished product!

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
