Friday is here and it’s a beautiful day! Today I’m sharing this one pan, cheesy pasta skillet recipe. It’s so quick and easy, and you only need a few ingredients. This is one of my quick, go-to meals on game nights.
1 lb. lean ground beef (can sub lean turkey) *seasoning to taste
1 jar red pasta sauce of your choice (I used Classico four cheese red sauce)
1/2 box uncooked rotini pasta (about 2 cups dry) (can sub a similar shaped pasta) *I used garden vegetable rotini.
3/4 cup low moisture, part skim, shredded mozzarella cheese
You’ll need to brown and season the meat to your liking. While browning the meat, boil the pasta according to the package directions. (I like to cook these at the same time so your pasta is ready to go as soon as the meat is done).
After the meat is browned, set your cook temp to low and add your cooked, drained pasta.
Now, add your pasta sauce and stir together to mix.
After it’s all mixed up you can turn the burner off and sprinkle your cheese on top. Pop a lid on for a few minutes and let the cheese melt. Once it’s all melted, your ready to serve.
To complete your meal, add a side of steamed veggies or a leafy green salad.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! It’s a weeknight staple in our home.
