Sloppy Joe Rotini Casserole

Begin by cooking the rotini noodles according to the package instructions until they are al dente. This usually takes about 8-10 minutes. Drain the noodles and set them aside.

2. Brown the Ground Beef
While the pasta is cooking, heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and cook until it’s fully browned, breaking it up with a spoon as it cooks. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. If there’s excess fat, drain it off for a lighter dish.

3. Mix in Sloppy Joe Sauce
Once the beef is browned, reduce the heat to medium and stir in the Sloppy Joe sauce. Allow it to simmer for 5 minutes, giving the flavors time to meld beautifully.

4. Combine Noodles and Sloppy Joe Mixture
In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked rotini noodles with the Sloppy Joe mixture. Ensure every piece of pasta is evenly coated with the savory sauce.

5. Add Cheese and a Surprise
Here comes the fun part! Stir in half a cup of shredded cheddar cheese and a cup of frozen mixed vegetables. This unexpected addition not only enhances the flavor but also sneaks in some extra veggies for a balanced meal.

6. Transfer to a Baking Dish
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish and transfer the noodle mixture into it, spreading it out evenly for a perfect bake.

7. Top with Cheese
