Sloppy Joe Pasta

This is a fast and easy pasta meal! Also great if you have leftover Sloppy Joe meat. I love fast meals that I can make, especially when I get to use my leftovers--no waste and I save a few dollars.

  • 1 (16 ounce) package farfalle (bow tie) pasta

  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef

  • 1 ½ cups water

  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato sauce

  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste

  • 1 (1.3 ounce) envelope Sloppy Joe seasoning mix

  • ¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese, or to taste


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.

  2. While pasta boils, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease.

  3. Transfer beef back into the pan. Add water, tomato sauce, tomato paste, and seasoning mix, and bring to a simmer. Continue to simmer until heated through and flavors have blended, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in cooked pasta and mozzarella cheese and serve.

Cook's Notes:

You can use any pasta you like.

If you have leftover Sloppy Joe meat use it instead of making new! Then it's super fast and easy--all you have to do is boil pasta! Also, you can add a can of tomato or Sloppy Joe sauce for more flavor and saucy texture.
