I don't always cook, but when I do, it comes out pretty good. Just wanted to share this EASY Philly Cheesesteak Pasta recipe with you. I didn't do ANY measurments, but once you start reading, you'll see you don't really need them, it's simple and you can eye everything, which, for this particular dish, I'd prefer.

PHILLY CHEESESTEAK PASTA

Ingredients:

1 Red Bell Pepper

1 Green Bell Pepper

1 Onion

Ground Beef

Beef Broth

Shell Pasta

Cream Cheese

Shredded Mozzerella

Salt and Pepper

Garlic (i used minced)

Butter

Provolone Cheese Slices

 

STEPS:

1. Pour beef broth into pot with equal parts water (or even a little less, as long as the pasta is covered.)

2. Boil until MOSTLY done, I like mine al dente.

3. While the pasta is boiling, put garlic and butter in a pan, let simmer.

4. Add in green and red peppers DICED (I prefer A LOT of veggies in anything I eat, so even though I only used one of each, I would maybe try 2 next time, but that's your call!)

5. Add onions (let the peppers cook for maybe a minute or 2 before you throw in the onions (DICED, also). Simmer.

6. Add 1lb of ground beef (add salt and pepper) - Simmer all togther until beef is cooked through.

7. Add entire block of cream cheese (cut into cubes to help spread around easier)

8. Add shredded mozzerella. Amount? Doesn't matter, it's cheese. I think at least a good handful to really give it some creaminess. But I put 2 handfuls lol, I LIKE CHEESE!!

9. Add pasta to mixture with maybe a half cup of the pasta water. Stir all together.....may seem a little runny, but it will thicken up and you will appreciate doing that.

10. NOT DONE - Top with provolone slices and bake or broil in the oven at whatever temp you need to just melt the cheese into the pasta. Once done, stir, and ENJOY!
