Cheeseburger Stuffed Shells

Yield: 4 Servings


  • 1 (12 ounce) box jumbo pasta shells
  • 2 1/2lbs ground beef
  • ½ cup onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 ½ cups ketchup (divided)
  • ¼ cup yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Cook the pasta shells in a large pot filled with water according to package directions. Drain and rinse the shells with cold water.
  2. In a large skillet cook the ground beef and onion over medium-high heat until the beef is cooked through. In a large bowl mix the cooked ground beef with ½ cup of ketchup, yellow mustard, Worcestershire sauce, pepper and 1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together 1 cup of ketchup and the tomato sauce. Ladle enough of the sauce to lightly over the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  4. Fill each pasta shell with about ¼ cup of the ground beef mixture and place filling-side-up into the baking dish. Drizzle the remaining sauce over the shells and sprinkle with 2 cups of shredded cheese over the shells. Cover the baking dish tightly with aluminum foil.
  5.  Place into the oven and bake covered at 400 degrees F. for 30 minutes and then uncover and bake for about 10 minutes until the cheese has melted and the sauce is bubbling.
