Old-Fashioned Hamburger Casserole
Casseroles are quick and easy, one-pan dishes that never disappoint.

Because they typically contain carbs, protein, fats, and vegetables, they’re considered a stand-alone meal.

With this old-fashioned hamburger casserole, you’ll get all the delicious elements of a hamburger, but more.

It’s filled with egg noodles, ground beef, tomato sauce, sour cream, cream cheese, and melty cheddar. WOW is an understatement.

Think of it as a mash-up between a cheeseburger and a lasagna. It is, without a doubt, comfort food at its best.




  • 1 lb medium shell pasta
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 (10 oz each) cans tomato soup
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste, or seasoned salt



Preheat oven to 375°F and grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
In a large pot of salted water, cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

While pasta is cooking, brown and break up hamburger in a skillet until no longer pink, seasoning how you’d like. (You can use just salt and pepper, seasoned salt, garlic powder, etc!)

Add ground beef, tomato soup, pasta, 1/2 cup water, and half of the cheeses to the baking dish and stir to combine.

Top with remaining cheese and cover with foil. Bake 20 minutes.
Remove foil and bake 10 minutes more. If desired, broil for 2-3 minutes to brown cheese further.
