Cheesy BBQ Beef Casserole Recipe

Cheesy Barbecue Beef Casserole is what I would call “comfort food”.  It’s hearty, satisfying and delicious. It’s also very easy to make. All you need is ground beef, cheese, barbecue sauce, onions and pasta.

The first step is to cook the pasta like you normally would and cook the ground beef and onions in a pot for about 10 minutes.

When the beef is cooked, add in the cooked pasta, barbecue sauce, mozzarella cheese and cheddar cheese (reserving 1/2 cup) and mix together. Add to a casserole dish.
