- 1 tbsp oil
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 4 cups cavatappi pasta
- 4 cups beef broth
- 1 cup tomato sauce
- ⅓ cup tomato ketchup
- 1 tbsp mustard
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- ½ cup dill pickles
- In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and cook, breaking it up with the side of a spoon, until it begins to brown. Add the onions, and continue to cook, stirring often, until they begin to soften about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the pasta, beef broth, and tomato sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil then reduce the heat to medium. Cover the pot and cook, stirring often, until the pasta has absorbed most of the liquid, about 10 to 13 mintues. Stir in the ketchup, mustard, cheddar cheese, and dill pickles. Continue to cook, stirring, until the cheese is melted, about 1 to 2 minutes.
- Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
