  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (10.5-ounce) can condensed beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 ounces dried pasta (such as elbow macaroni, penne, or rotini)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped pickles (optional)
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)


Sauté the ground beef. Heat the olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the ground beef and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until browned. Drain any excess grease.

Add the vegetables and garlic. Add the onion and bell pepper to the pot and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds more.

Deglaze the pan. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, beef broth, ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, oregano, salt, and pepper to the pot. Stir to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot.

Add the pasta and bring to a boil. Stir in the pasta and bring to a boil.

Simmer until the pasta is cooked. Reduce heat to low, cover the pot, and simmer for 10-12 minutes, or until the pasta is tender and the sauce has thickened, stirring occasionally.

Serve and garnish. Serve the cheeseburger pasta immediately, garnished with fresh parsley, if desired.
