With everyone’s busy schedules, having a few 30-minute meals the whole family loves is essential! That’s where this 30-Minute Sloppy Joe Casserole comes into play.

30-minute sloppy joe casserole

To get started on this quick and easy dinner, place ground beef, onion, and green pepper in a large pan. Cook until the beef is browned and veggies are tender, around 5-7 minutes. Next, pour in the sloppy joe sauce, followed by garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper. Heat until simmering, about 2-3 minutes.

Then, add the cooked pasta to the pan, stirring to coat. Mix in 1 1/2 cups of cheese until melted. Top with remaining cheese, cover, and cook for a few minutes until the top cheese is melted. Garnish with fresh parsley or basil and serve up hot!
