Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried mustard
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups chicken broth or water
  • 1 pound rotini pasta
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • In a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, combine beef and onion. Cook until the meat is mostly browned, about 5 minutes. Drain well.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together tomato sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, vinegar, Worcestershire, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
  • Pour sauce ingredients over drained beef and stir until evenly coated. Add broth and pasta. Bring to a boil, and cook until pasta is tender, about 10-12 minutes. Garnish with parsley, if desired. Serve.

Notes

How to freeze and reheat Sloppy Joe Casserole:
    1. Cool the finished casserole, then wrap tightly in foil and plastic wrap. Freeze for up to 2 months. If possible, thaw in the refrigerator overnight before reheating.
    2. To reheat when thawed, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cover the casserole in foil and reheat until it reaches 165 degrees, about 30 minutes. 
    3. To reheat straight from the freezer, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cover the casserole in foil and reheat until it reaches 165 degrees, about 45 minutes to an hour.
