  1. You’ll start by cooking and draining the pasta according to the package directions.
  2. Next, brown the beef in a large skillet with a little garlic powder, salt and pepper. You could also throw in a diced onion if you’d like.
  3. Once the beef is brown, toss the pasta shells, tomato soup, a little water, and half of the cheese in with the beef, and then mix it all up.
  4. Pour the mixture into a large 9×13 greased baking dish.
  5. Top it with the remaining cheese and then bake covered with foil in a 375 degree oven for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 10 minutes to brown the cheese. I also like to turn the oven to broil for the last few minutes to make it a little toasty.

Seriously, the best ground beef dinner recipe for your picky kids! This simple weeknight meal is a life saver, and it's so quick and easy to make with just a few cheap ingredients: ground beef, tomato soup, pasta shells and lots of cheese.

This easy casserole makes enough to serve 6-8 people, depending on the appetites. We usually have leftovers the next day, and it’s just as good reheated in the microwave.

I suppose you could also top it with a little sour cream, diced tomatoes, jalapeños, or anything else you’d like but it really doesn’t need it. It’s surprisingly packed full of flavor considering it only has a few ingredients.

4 Ingredient Hamburger Casserole (Quick & Easy)

Are you looking for quick and easy dinner recipes for your family? This simple casserole dish is perfect for busy weeknights, picky eaters and hungry husbands! It's not only delicous, it's also budget friendly, easy to make and a family favorite. It's made with just ground beef, pasta shells, tomato soup, cheese and seasoning to taste. Yum!

Servings: 8
Ingredients
  • 1 (1lb) box medium pasta shells
  • 1lb ground beef
  • 2 (10oz) cans tomato soup
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup water
  • garlilc, salt & pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Cook and drain the pasta according to the package directions.

  2. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 375 degrees and grease and 9x13 baking dish.

  3. In a large skillet, brown and chop the ground beef with garlic powder, salt and pepper (or any seasoning of your choice).

  4. Add the cooked pasta, tomato soup, a half cup of water and HALF of the cheese to your skillet with the browned beef; stir and cook for 2-3 minutes over medium heat.

  5. Pour the mixture into your greased dish and top with the remaining cheese.

  6. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and continue baking for an additional 10 minutes (I also like to turn the broiler on for the last 2-3 minutes to brown the cheese).

  7. Serve immediately and store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Recipe Notes
  • You don't have to use mozzarella for this dish if you'd rather use 100% cheddar instead. Your preference! I like the mozzarella because it makes the cheese stringy.
  • You can also add a diced onion or onion powder to the beef mixture. My family doesn't care much for onion, so I leave it out.
