Cheeseburger Casserole

Cheeseburgers made into anything is all right with me! I love the crispness of the pickle on this dish and it was super good the next day!

Cheeseburger Casserole
(recipe found on pinterest via

6 ounces uncooked rotini pasta
2 teaspoon oil
1 1/2 cups onions, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 pound lean ground beef
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoon tomato paste
28 ounces diced tomatoes
2 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
2 cups reduced fat grated cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped dill pickles

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Cook the pasta according to the package directions for al dente and drain well. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-low heat. Add the onions and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Stir in the beef and cook until browned; season with salt and pepper. Stir in the tomato paste, then add the tomatoes and mustard. Let the mixture bubble gently until it is slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Toss the meat mixture with the pasta and spread it into the prepared dish. Top with cheddar and bake until the cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle the chopped pickles over the top and serve.
