Okay, firstly – this recipe takes two seconds to make.
Secondly, it is ridiculously delicious, satisfying, creamy, saucy, hearty, flavorful, and perfect in every way.
Thirdly, it is the biggest busy weeknight win comin ‘atcha in 2019. It’s done within half an hour and will be a huge hit with the entire fam. If you want to be even more of a rock star, you’ll pop a side salad into this situation as well to freshen things up, but either way…you’re killin’ it with this one, friends.
What can I even say about this to describe its awesomeness accurately? It only takes five ingredients to make (not counting olive oil, salt, and pepper), two pans, and only half an hour of your evening. On top of that, it’s just plain yummy. It’s a little reminiscent of a hamburger helper type scenario, which you’re not going to find me complaining about, because I can get down on some hamburger helper, yo.
Let’s talk details here. What do we have going on in this skillet of delicious comfort?
- Ground beef
- Tomato sauce
- Cream cheese
- Shredded cheddar
That’s it. You get your pasta cooking, brown your beef, add the tomato sauce, let that simmer down while the pasta cooks. When the pasta is done, drain it, remove the beef + sauce from the heat, and stir in your cream cheese and cheddar. When that’s perfectly melted and delicious, stir in your pasta, and humbly enter the weeknight dinner hall of fame.
Go ahead and give yourself a sturdy pat on the back, because you deserve it. High five, internet friend ✋. …
