In the Kitchen…Cheesy BBQ Noodle Casserole

Today, Dustin and I are going to have our post-wedding garage sale. We don’t have much but we needed to have a sale to get rid of all our older stuff to make room for our wonderful wedding gifts!

Since its Saturday, I thought I would share a recipe since I haven’t done that for such a long time! I’m honestly going to try to get better at posting tasty recipes that we’ve tried! So here we go!

(Warning: This kick might have a little kick-I mean my mouth of on fire!)


3 cups Macaroni Pasta noodles

1 pound Ground Beef

1 whole Medium Onion, Diced

¼ cups Fresh Parsley, Chopped

1 cup Milk

2 cups Of Your Favorite BBQ Sauce (Our favorite BBQ sauce recipe follows directions)

1 cup Mozzarella Cheese

2 cups Monterey Jack Cheese

BBQ Sauce As Garnish


1. Heat oven to 350F. Spray a 2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray. (I used my Pampered Chef round baker.)

2. Cook and drain pasta according to package directions.

3. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat 8-10 minutes until beef is brown, drain grease. Stir pasta, 3 Tablespoons of parsley, milk, BBQ sauce, mozzerella cheese and 1 cup Monterrey Jack cheese into beef in skillet. Stir well.

4. Spoon mixture into casserole dish. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese and parsley, plus a swirl of BBQ sauce across the entire surface.

5. Bake uncovered 30-40 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
