Cook the Beef Mixture:

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef until it starts to brown, breaking it up

with a spatula as it cooks.

Add the diced onion, red bell pepper, and minced garlic to the skillet. Cook until the vegetables are

tender and the beef is fully browned.

Season with salt, black pepper, paprika, and dried oregano. Stir well to combine.

Add the Sauces:

Add the drained diced tomatoes, condensed tomato soup, ketchup, and yellow mustard to the skillet.

Stir until all ingredients are well combined.

Let the mixture simmer for about 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.

Combine with Pasta and Cheese:

In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked pasta with the beef mixture.

Stir in 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese and 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese until evenly

distributed.

Assemble the Casserole:

Pour the pasta and beef mixture into a greased 9×13-inch baking dish.

Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese and 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese

evenly over the top.

Bake:

Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

If you like a golden, crispy top, you can broil the casserole for an additional 2-3 minutes at the end,

watching carefully to avoid burning.

Garnish and Serve:

Remove the casserole from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.

Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and pickle slices if desired.

Tips for the Best Cheeseburger Casserole:

 

Customize the Vegetables: Feel free to add or substitute vegetables according to your preference.

Mushrooms, green bell peppers, or zucchini can be great additions.

Cheese Variations: Use your favorite cheeses to customize the flavor. Sharp cheddar, Monterey Jack,

or a blend of cheeses can add a unique twist.

Pasta Choices: While elbow macaroni and rotini are classic choices, you can use any pasta shape you

prefer. Just make sure it’s cooked al dente to avoid becoming mushy during baking.

Conclusion

 

This Ultimate Cheeseburger Casserole is a comforting, delicious dish that brings together the best

elements of a cheeseburger in a convenient, easy-to-make casserole. It’s perfect for weeknight

dinners, meal prep, or serving a crowd. Enjoy the rich, cheesy goodness and the nostalgic flavors of a
