Hamburger Hot Dish Casserole

Category: Main Dish

 Ingredients List

  • 3 cups of uncooked rotini pasta
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 cup of chopped onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1 can of Rotel, or regular diced tomatoes
  • 1 (8 ounce) can of tomato sauce
  • 4 ounces of beef broth (1/2 of the tomato sauce can)
  • 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning (like Slap Ya Mama), or to taste, optional
  • 1 tablespoon of dried parsley
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter or spray an 8 x 8 inch baking dish; set aside. Generously salt a pot of boiling water for the pasta and cook al dente according to the package directions.

In a large skillet, add the olive oil. Saute the onion until softened but not browned; add the garlic and cook another minute. Add the beef and cook until browned, breaking the meat up well. Stir in the tomatoes, tomato sauce, beef broth, sugar, salt, Cajun seasoning, and parsley. Add in the cooked and drained pasta and cook until tomatoes and pasta are thoroughly warmed through.

Turn out into the prepared baking dish. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 40 minutes or until heated through and bubbly. Remove foil, sprinkle evenly with the shredded cheddar and return to the oven for about 5 minutes, or just until cheese is melted.
