Cheeseburger Ziti Casserole Recipe

Servings: 6-8


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb ziti pasta (or any similar pasta shape)
  • 1 pint (2 cups) heavy cream
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional toppings: chopped green onions, sliced jalapeños, diced pickles


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add diced onions and minced garlic, and sauté until fragrant and translucent, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add ground beef to the skillet with the onions and garlic. Cook, breaking it apart with a spatula, until the beef is browned and cooked through. Drain excess fat if necessary.
  4. While the beef is cooking, cook the ziti pasta according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  5. In a mixing bowl, combine the heavy cream, shredded cheddar cheese, and shredded mozzarella cheese. Mix until well combined.
  6. In a large baking dish, spread a thin layer of the cream and cheese mixture on the bottom.
  7. Layer half of the cooked ziti pasta on top of the cream mixture in the baking dish.
  8. Spread half of the cooked ground beef evenly over the pasta layer.
  9. Pour half of the remaining cream and cheese mixture over the beef layer, spreading it out evenly.
  10. Repeat the layers with the remaining pasta, beef, and cream and cheese mixture.
  11. Top the casserole with diced tomatoes.
  12. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  13. After 20 minutes, remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown.
  14. Once done, remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
  15. Serve hot, optionally garnished with chopped green onions, sliced jalapeños, or diced pickles.
