Cheeseburger Pasta Skillet

Here is an easy cheeseburger pasta skillet.  A one pot wonder if you may.  These kind of meals are my go to meals when I have had a super crazy day and just need something easy but tastes better than the box stuff.  (Also it is way better for you too!)  Everything is cooked in one skillet or pan and that makes me happy because I don’t have to clean up a ton of dishes!!  WIN!!  Hey break out the paper plates and really make it an easy night 🙂 .

Cheeseburger Pasta Skillet

My kids really enjoy this meal, but they love anything that contains pasta.  If you like cheeseburgers you will enjoy this.  I have even sprinkled it with a little chopped pickles at the end (which I think really makes it taste like a cheeseburger) and you could even add lettuce if you really wanted to get fancy.

Start by browning your hamburger then add in everything except the cheese and garnishes.  Simmer until the pasta is tender and soaked up most of the liquid.  Sprinkle with cheese and let this melt.  Now garnish with your favorite burger toppings and you are ready to dig in!!
