Ground beef recipes are always popular. The meat cooks quickly and is budget-friendly. Combine the ground beef with pasta, add mushrooms, herbs, tomatoes and two types of cheese, and a tasty, satisfying dinner is ready in no time.

The Casserole is very simple to make. To start, cook the pasta in salted boiling water. In this recipe, the pasta is cooked separately so that the pasta doesn’t absorb the tasty sauce – everything else is cooked in one skillet.

The pasta is then swirled in the meaty, cheesy sauce and topped with provolone cheese slices. The Casserole is baked until the sauce starts to bubble, and the cheese topping is melted. The baking takes just a few minutes. There is nothing complicated about this perfect meal.

what to serve with Ground Beef and Mushroom Casserole?

There are many options whenever you serve pasta. I like to add a light green salad, this adds freshness to the hearty gluten-free pasta casserole. If you have big appetites, adding Gluten-Free Cheese and Garlic Flatbread or Gluten-Free Butter Rolls will complete the meal. Or, you can serve this Gluten-Free Ground Beef and Mushroom Casserole just as is. The best way to enjoy this gluten-free pasta dish is hot, straight out of the oven.

I love this beef and mushroom casserole because the ingredients are simple, and the pasta casserole is super easy to whip up. I used provolone cheese for the topping because I like the sharp taste of Provolone cheese.

The cheese adds more flavour and creaminess to this gluten-free pasta casserole. You can also use Provolone dolce (sweet) with a very mild flavour if that is what you prefer. If you don’t want to use Provolone cheese, you can replace it with mozzarella cheese, or any good melting cheese.
