Easy Cheeseburger Pasta Skillet

Easy Cheeseburger Pasta Skillet

Busy weekday evenings are my kryptonite. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done. I love quick and simple recipes that come together quickly and are delicious. This Cheeseburger Pasta Skillet is perfect.

You will not believe how much this tastes like a real cheeseburger. Make sure and use all the ingredients to get that real cheeseburger taste. I know adding mustard, ketchup and pickles to pasta seems weird but it works!

The best thing about this meal? It comes together very quickly and you only dirty up two pans. Leftovers taste just as good the next day so it is definitely a winner plus it uses ground beef which is a staple in our freezer.
