Cheeseburger Skillet Dinner Ingredients
Bowtie Pasta Noodles
Brown the ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Drain the grease from the skillet.
Add the garlic powder, salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder & sugar and stir to combine together well.
Pour in the 2 cups of milk, then add the cream cheese and uncooked noodles. Mix well and then bring to a boil over medium heat.
Then cover with a lid and continue cooking for about five minutes on medium heat. Remove the lid and stir everything really well.
Mix in the cheddar cheese. Keep stirring occasionally while the pasta is cooking and the sauce thickens to your liking. You can reduce the heat a bit or continue cooking on medium heat.
I like to continue cooking for about 8-10 minutes until the noodles are soft and the sauce is thick. Serve this cheeseburger skillet meal with a salad alongside for a nutritious meal.
