For the Casserole:

1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (10.75 ounces) condensed tomato soup
1 cup frozen corn kernels
1 cup frozen peas
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cups cooked elbow macaroni or pasta of your choice
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or any cheese of your choice)


Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

Brown the Ground Beef: In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until it’s browned and cooked through, breaking it into crumbles as it cooks. Drain any excess fat.

Sauté the Onions and Garlic: Add the chopped onions and minced garlic to the skillet with the cooked beef. Sauté for a few minutes until the onions are translucent and fragrant.

Add the Vegetables and Seasonings: Stir in the diced tomatoes (with their juice), condensed tomato soup, frozen corn, frozen peas, dried oregano, dried basil, salt, and pepper. Mix everything together well. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Combine with Pasta: In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked elbow macaroni (or pasta of your choice) and the beef and vegetable mixture. Mix until everything is well combined.

Layer in Casserole Dish: Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish. Spread half of the pasta mixture in the bottom of the dish.

Add Half of the Cheese: Sprinkle half of the shredded cheddar cheese (or your preferred cheese) over the pasta layer.

Layer Again: Add the remaining pasta mixture on top of the cheese layer.

Top with Cheese: Finish by sprinkling the remaining cheese evenly over the top.

Bake: Cover the casserole dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until it’s hot and bubbly.

Broil (optional): If you want a golden, crispy top, remove the foil and broil the casserole for an additional 2-3 minutes, keeping a close eye on it to prevent burning.

Serve: Once the casserole is done, let it cool for a few minutes, then serve it hot. You can garnish it with fresh chopped herbs like parsley if desired.

Enjoy your Cheesy Hamburger Casserole! This dish is great for a family dinner and can be paired with a side salad or some crusty bread for a complete meal.
