Cheesy Elbow Pasta Skillet Supper
Makes 4 servings.

Prep Time: 20 min.
Cooking Time: 10 min.


1 - pound ground beef
1 - jar (1-pound) double cheddar sauce
1 - large tomato, chopped
8 - ounces elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
1 - Tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves or 1/4 teaspoon dried basil leaves
Salt (to taste)
Fresh ground pepper (to taste)

  • In 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat, add your ground beef. 
  • Brown and drain. 
  • Next, stir in the sauce, tomato and hot pasta. 
  • Simmer uncovered for 5 minutes or until heated through. 
  • You want to stir occasionally. 
  • Finally, stir in the basil, salt and pepper.

Picnicking & Tailgating

Prepare the sauce a day or two ahead.  Reheat in microwave and pour into a thermos to keep hot.  Prepare the noodles the day of the picnic or tailgate party.  Then place in hot thermal container to keep hot.  At your site, just put the sauce and spaghetti together. 

Just put the grate cheese in a plastic container and into the ice chest to keep chilled.  Sprinkle over the spaghetti when ready to chow down.
