  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 16 oz large elbow pasta
  • 1 can tomatoes with green chilis
  • 1 teaspoon course salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  • Cook pasta according to directions. 
  • In a large skillet, brown ground beef over medium heat until cooked through. Drain excess grease and season meat with salt and pepper. 
  • Stir in diced onion and peppers. Cook another 2-3 minutes. Add in tomatoes and stir. 
  • Stir in pasta and cheese. Serve hot. 


  • Cook the pasta al dente so it will not get too mushy in the casserole. 
  • If you don't like spicy food, substitute Rotel with a can of petite diced tomatoes.
