Sloppy Joe Pasta

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb. 93% to 96% lean ground beef
  • 2 pkts. Sloppy Joe mix
  • 12-16 oz. box medium shell pasta cooked and drained
  • 29 oz. jar Prego spaghetti sauce or your favorite kind
  • 1 cup water, if needed I never use this much—I use about 1/3 to ½ cup at the most
  • 24 oz. ctn. cottage cheese or ricotta cheese, if preferred
  • 8 oz. pkg. sharp cheddar cheese shredded


In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil.
Add shell pasta and cook according to package directions.
While pasta is cooking, in a large saucepan, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.
Stir in the Sloppy Joe mix, water (I use about a half cup to rinse out the spaghetti sauce jar), and spaghetti sauce.
Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, simmer, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes.
Remove from heat; stir in drained pasta.
Spoon half of the beef mixture into a greased 3-qt. casserole dish.
Top with cottage cheese (or ricotta cheese) and remaining beef mixture.
Bake, covered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until bubbly.
Remove foil.
Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and bake until cheese is melted about 3-5minutes longer.
