Home run for my guys! I made it to eat as we watched the National League playoff game, & it was a big hit. I adjusted some things: 1 1/2 lb. 81% lean hamburger, 12 oz. tricolor rotini, & I-don’t-know-how-much Colby cheddar jack (because I just used up a chunk I had) – but it was more than 2 c. shredded. It was wonderful! Thanks once again for a tasty recipe that is also easy, family-friendly, & good for weeknights.
I made an adapted version of this recipe for dinner tonight. I halved the half and half and increased the broth by about half a cup. I think the sauce needs a bit of seasoning and can maybe do without the flour which clumped. The dish turned out well enough and I would make it again with more tweaks.
Loved this recipe made so much I don’t have to cook for a couple of days and this is one I will not mind eating several days in a row. This was my first recipe from you and I’m looking forward to trying another, thank you!
This was a huge hit with my family! Used rotelle pasta instead of egg noodles. 8 min. cooking time was fine. Used only half the shredded cheese. No leftovers for my lunch today. ;-(
I’m so glad you liked it Jenny!
Thank you, Jenny! I will use the pasta instead and keep it to the eight minute cooking time.
One and a half cups of half-and-half? Does this dish need to be that rich? I think I’ll make this with milk. The 2 cups of cheese will add enough fat.
Easy and came together fast but I didn’t love it. The noodles didn’t cook evenly, and I did stir them to make sure they were covered in the liquid mixture. It might be better if the noodles were cooked separately. It seemed too thick and gluey. I felt the need to add more half and half to thin it out the sauce a little.
Do you think whole wheat pasta and 1% milk could be used successfully in this recipe?
I don’t know about the 1% milk but I successfully used whole wheat penne.
i’m confused.Is the pasta cooked before adding to milk mixture?
Hi Jen, no, the noodles cook in the milk mixture.
This delicious pasta dish makes a complete meal for the family. It looks really yummy. We have pasta almost daily in our household!
Ah, sounds so good. I think if you grill beef patties on a griddle or, better yet, on a grill, it will be even better. A little more effort but can be so worth it. I like to make chili with burger meat grilled on a charcoal grill, the flavors are out of this world.
The recipe turned out delicious! Thanks!
This looks really family friendly. I think I’d use cheddar over Mozz. I live just 30 minutes from the Canadian border and their cheese is the best!
The pasta looks more like rotini than egg noodles, which is fine with me because there is an egg allergy here. I’d love to make this with rotini, or some other egg-free pasta. My question is since the pasta would probably take longer than eight minutes to cook through, would you recommend letting it cook longer in the milk mixture or boiling it separately in water then adding it after? Thank you – looks delicious!
