This casserole will always have a special place in my heart. I love how this is packed with juicy ground beef and noodles in a cheesy Manwich sauce with tomatoes and corn. Prep everything in a pot, shift into a casserole, pop in the oven, and voila! The best Sloppy Joe Casserole in history is born.

Ingredients

1 pound ground beef, 85% lean

½ c. onions, diced

1 15.5 ounces can Manwich sauce

2 c. chicken broth

1 14.5 ounces can diced tomatoes, not drained

½ c. water

¾ lb. farfalle pasta

8 ounces Velveeta cheese, cubed

1 c. corn, frozen or drained from a can

1 ½ c. cheddar, shredded

How to make Sloppy Joe Casserole

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees.

Step 2: In a large pot or dutch oven, cook the ground beef over medium-high heat until brown.

Step 3: Drain any excess grease from the pot, then add in the onions. Cook for approximately 5 minutes.

Step 4: Pour the Manwich sauce, chicken broth, undrained diced tomatoes, and water into the pot.

Step 5: Bring the mixture to a gentle boil, then stir in the pasta.

Step 6: Allow to gently boil for about 15 minutes until the pasta is al dente, covered. Since we are boiling gently, you might need to extra 3 to 4 minutes in the cooking time.

Step 7: Adjust the heat to low. Stir in the corn and, then add in the cubed Velveeta. Cover and let the Velveeta to melt.

Step 8: Remove the cover and gently stir.

Step 9: In a lightly greased 9 x 13-inch casserole dish, transfer the mixture from the pot and top with the shredded cheddar.

Step 10: Cover and place in the preheated oven. Bake for about 15 minutes.
