Cheeseburger Pasta

This recipe isn't life changing or anything, it's just yummy and cozy and easy.  It's a modified version of one from  I've made it a couple of times and we like it.  Next time I'd like to add some halved cherry tomatoes, but I'm a tomato lover.  Note that you can use a different kind of pasta, but the type of pasta definitely has an impact on how long it takes to cook!  Fusilli takes about 20 minutes in this dish, penne is closer to 30.  I personally prefer quicker so will go with the fusilli!  You can also use a diced onion and 3 cloves minced garlic instead of the onion and garlic powders, just saute the onion with the ground beef and then toss in the garlic with the seasonings.
Cheeseburger Pasta
1 lb ground beef
3/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
4 Tbsp ketchup
2 Tbsp yellow mustard
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
6 C beef broth
1 lb fusilli pasta
1/2 C milk
2 C grated cheddar
Saute ground beef until cooked through, drain if necessary.  Add seasonings, ketchup, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce, and saute for another minute.  Add beef broth.  Bring to a boil, stir in fusilli, cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until pasta is tender, stirring every 10 minutes or so, about 20 minutes total.  Remove from heat, add milk, then stir in cheese until melted.
Yield: 6-8 servings
