This is one of my kids favorite things to eat. It is easy, cheap, and goes a long way. If you are on a budget, this is a good recipe for you. It has very few ingredients too.

Thank you for posting this. I was looking for a way to use some ground beef that needed to be used and some left over pasta. This was quick, easy and surprisingly good. I did add in a bag of frozen broccoli, califlower and carrots. My DS said I can make this any time and I just might do that!! Thanks again!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs ground beef (your choice) or 2 lbs ground turkey (your choice)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped or diced
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) soup can milk
  • 1 (3 7/8 ounce) can sliced mushrooms (optional)
  • 3 -4 cups uncooked pasta, we use shell pasta, but any kind should do or 3 -4 cups elbow macaroni or 3 -4 cups egg noodles, but any kind should do


  1. Boil water for pasta.
  2. In a large skillet, brown ground meat and onions until onions are clear. Drain. Add pasta to boiling water.
  3. Return meat and onions to skillet, add soups and milk, and extra mushrooms if you want. Cook until pasta is cooked to your doneness.
  4. Note: You can serve the meat over the pasta, or you can mix it all together. It is up to you, but my kids don't care how I serve it, they just love it!
