Ground Beef Casserole


I've been making this hamburger casserole recipe for years but can't remember where the recipe originally came from. Wanted to post it so I wouldn't lose it!

Prep Time:
15 mins
Cook Time:
1 hr 45 mins
Total Time:
2 hrs


  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • ½ cup chopped yellow onion

  • ¼ cup chopped green bell pepper

  • ¼ cup chopped carrot

  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes

  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

  • 1 (8 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained

  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1 (8 ounce) package bow-tie pasta (farfalle)

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup

  • ¼ pound shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef, salt, and black pepper in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Add onion, bell pepper, carrot, and garlic to beef; cook and stir until onion is lightly browned, about 15 minutes.

  2. Mix tomatoes, tomato sauce, mushrooms, Worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar into beef and vegetable mixture; season with salt and black pepper. Cook on low until liquid is reduced and flavors have blended, about 45 minutes.

  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain and transfer pasta to a 9x13-inch casserole dish.

  5. Spoon cream of mushroom soup over pasta; top with beef and vegetable mixture. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese on top.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbling and Cheddar cheese is melted, about 45 minutes.
