Sloppy Joe Mini Penne Skillet

We love pasta for many reasons, they're cheap and versatile.

Sloppy Joe Mini Penne Skillet
Recipe by Christine Lamb @ Christine's Pantry - 2016

1 pound ground chuck beef
4 ounces mini penne
1 - 15 oz. can sloppy joe sauce
1 - 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes

In large skillet over medium heat, add ground chuck beef, salt, pepper and worcestershire sauce, cook until no longer pink. Remove meat to a paper towel lined dish. In the same skillet add onions, bell pepper, salt, pepper, garlic powder and crushed red pepper, stir and cook until tender, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add meat back to skillet, stirring. Add sloppy joe sauce, diced tomatoes, italian seasoning, pasta water and stir in cooked pasta. Heat through. Sprinkle cheese, cover until cheese is melted, remove cover and stir. 



  1. I love the down-home-goodness of your recipes, Christine! I'm sure plates are piled high w/this great dish!

  2. Oh my gosh... Really wishing I had a big plate of this sloppy joe penne right now! Yum!

  3. This one is definitely new-fashioned comfort food. Impressive.

  4. A perfect family dish for those pasta lovers!

  5. This looks delicious, and I want to make it next week for my daughter. How many servings is in this dish ?

  6. How mamy people does this recipe serve?

  7. I made this and loved it. I love sloppy joes and this dish was just wonderful.

  8. I fixed this dish. It was very good. I replaced the garlic powder with minces garlic. I don't really do spicey foods so I replaced the red pepper flakes with Tony Chachere's creole seasoning. I topped it with the cheese but I put it the oven for about 10 minutes. It makes a lot so I put the extra in a container and put it in the freezer so for another time I'll just get it out and put cheese on it. Dinner! Thank you for sharing you recipe.

  9. I made this last night and it was a winner! My son lives a few blocks away and I took him some and after he ate he said Keep that recipe! Husband and grandson loved it also! Had most spices on hand so this was easy! Try it out! You’ll love it!

  10. 4 oz of pasta isn’t a lot? Is this correct?
