Rotini has the texture and structure to contain the sauce, but any medium-sized pasta would do. Try mostaccioli, penne, or farfalle.

GROUND BEEF: The foundation of any good cheeseburger is beef! Because the small amount of fat gives the meat taste, I like an 80/20 ratio.

SAUCE: This is a quick and simple cheese sauce that only requires a quick stir (no boiling or roux required).

A little Worcestershire sauce and BBQ sauce enhance the meaty flavor in addition to the fantastic cheese flavor.


  • Low-carb or keto diets? Substitute roasted cauliflower or cauliflower rice for the spaghetti (and swap out the bbq sauce for a low-carb version).
  • Use ground beef in place of leftover hamburgers by chopping them up.
  • You can experiment with the seasoning by adding some red pepper flakes or by switching the soup’s base to the cream of mushroom or French onion soup.

Making a Cheeseburger Casserole Recipe

Because everyone’s food cooks at the same time in this simple casserole, there’s no need to fry up individual burgers.

  1. Prepare al dente pasta and drain.
  2. Brown the onion and the ground meat, then season (per the recipe below).
  3. In a 9×13 pan, mix the sauce ingredients with the spaghetti and beef.
