Tips:  

There are a few things you can do to make sure your Sloppy Joe Casserole turns out perfectly every time. First, be sure to brown the ground beef before adding it to the casserole. This will help to prevent the beef from becoming tough and dry. Second, be sure to drain any excess fat from the beef before adding it to the casserole. Otherwise, your casserole may end up being too greasy. Finally, be sure to use a good quality chili sauce in your casserole. This will ensure that your casserole has plenty of flavor.

Notes:

This recipe is a take on the classic sloppy joe, but in casserole form. It’s easy to make and can be tailored to your liking. For example, you can add more or less of the tomato sauce, depending on how saucy you like your casserole. You can also add other vegetables, such as onions or green peppers. This dish is best served with a side of mashed potatoes or rice.

  • Uncooked 3/4 pound Farfalle Pasta
  • 8 oz. Velveeta cheese cubed
  • 1 cup frozen corn or drained from can
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar shredded

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375°F

  • You can add liquids such as Manwich sauce, chicken broth and undrained diced tomato.
  • Bring to a gentle boil. Add the pasta to the saucepan and stir.
  • Let it boil for about 5 minutes. To ensure that the pasta doesn't stick, stir it a few more times. We are simmering the pasta gently so we recommend boiling it for a little longer than indicated on the package. Before you proceed, taste-test the noodles.
