Sloppy Joe Pasta Skillet Dinner

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Chef shapeweaver

I had some leftovers from Aunt Helen's Sloppy Joes and I didn't want to make anymore Sloppy Joes,so I came up with this. For the pasta I used elbow macaroni,but feel free to use what you have on hand.And for the meat,use what ever you have leftover from any Sloppy Joe recipe.I suggest using the mild Ro-Tel,the original might be to hot for the kiddos :).

What a great recipe! I used Recipe#146372 for the sloppy joe meat and I also added some small red kidney beans. I didn't have diced tomatoes with green chilies so I just used the regular diced tomatoes and added a few dashes of cayenne pepper. I used mini penne pasta. Turned out wonderful. We enjoyed this for our dinner. It was quick and easy to prepare and would be great for a weeknight family dinner. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!
