Cheeseburger Pasta

I love trying new pasta dishes, especially ones that incorporate meat; it makes the dish that much more filling.  And throw some cheese in there, and you've got yourself a winner as far as my belly is concerned.

This was so delicious that I immediately regretted not doubling it and having leftovers.  And the fact that you don't even have to cook the pasta?  Score!  Another great dinner from my friend Kelly, and so perfect for those cool autumn nights that NJ seems to be missing right now.

Cheeseburger Pasta
very slightly adapted from Running Mama Cooks

  • 1 lb ground turkey breast
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 3/4 cups water
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1T mustard
  • 2 cups elbow mac, uncooked
  • 4 oz reduced fat velveeta, cubed
Brown meat in a large skillet, drain.

Add water, ketchup, onion, and mix well.

Bring to a boil and add mac. Simmer on med-low heat, covered, for 8-10 minutes (until pasta tender).

Stir in velveeta and cook until melted, stirring occasionally.


  1. that looks like a good family friendly recipe, just up my alley!

  2. I love the flavors and simplicity of this recipe. Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Just added this meal to my recipe staff for future use! Looks so good! Thank you!

  4. Made this tonight, we really liked it! I goofed and forgot the mustard - question though, do you use the 'condiment' mustard, or the powdered mustard? (for my lack of appropriate terms lol)
