Brown the Beef: In a skillet, brown the ground beef over medium-high heat until it’s fully cooked. Make sure to drain any excess oil.
Mix in the Manwich: While the meat is still hot, mix in the can of Manwich sauce. Stir well to combine, creating a flavorful meat mixture.
Add Cheese: Toss in a handful (or more if you’re a cheese lover) of shredded cheese into the meat mixture. Mix until the cheese is melted and evenly distributed.
Prepare the Pasta: In a separate pot, boil the pasta according to the package instructions. Once cooked, drain the pasta thoroughly.
Combine Ingredients: Add the drained pasta to the beef and Manwich mixture. Gently mix everything together until the pasta is coated with the savory sauce.
Casserole Assembly: Transfer the mixture to a casserole dish, spreading it out evenly.
Cheesy Topping: Sprinkle an additional layer of shredded cheese over the top of the casserole, creating a gooey and delicious cheese crust.
Baking Time: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Bake the casserole for approximately 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the cheese is bubbling.
