This creamy beef and rotini pasta is another easy dinner to get on the table. This is another one my husband referred as a being like hamburger helper, but so much better.

Another thing I love about this dish is the ingredients are simple and all items I usually keep on hand. Cream cheese is what is used to make the sauce creamy in this creamy beef and rotini pasta. So it’s a nice change from the usual pasta with red sauce.

The base for this dish starts with a pound of ground beef and onion, just brown it together in a skillet. While doing that you can also have a pound of rotini pasta cooking.

Once your beef is browned you will add in some garlic to cook for just 1 minute. Then you add is some Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, tomato sauce and beef broth. Just bring to a simmer and cook for 8-10 minutes to thicken slightly. Now comes in the cream cheese. Add it in cubes and stir until melted. It’s time now to mix in the cooked rotini and mozzarella cheese. Once it’s all combined you can serve.
