Ingredients & Substitutions:

  1. Pasta: Cavatappi noodles are a personal favorite, but any tubular noodles work well to capture the richness of the cheese sauce.
  2. Ground Beef: Opt for 80/20 ground beef or try a leaner version, ground turkey, or ground chicken for variety.
  3. Mushrooms: Sliced button mushrooms are ideal, though baby Bella mushrooms also make a flavorful choice.
  4. Onion: Yellow onion imparts a delightful flavor, but red onion can be a suitable alternative.
  5. Cheese Sauce: Swiss cheese forms the base, complemented by the addition of mozzarella for an extra cheesy delight.

Ingredients:

Noodles

  • 1 box (16 ounces / 454 g) Cavatappi noodles

Mushrooms

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 cups (about 400 g) button mushrooms, thinly sliced

Hamburger

  • 1/2 cup (about 80 g) yellow onion, diced (about 1/2 a medium yellow onion)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds (680 g) ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 tablespoon hamburger seasoning

Cheese Sauce

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick / 113 g) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup (62.5 g) all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups (735 g) whole milk, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup (113 g) Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup (56.5 g) mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions:

Noodles

  • In a large pot of salted water, cook noodles al dente according to package instructions (about 9 minutes). While the pasta is cooking, prepare the mushrooms. Drain noodles when done; set aside.

Mushrooms

  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter and salt. Add the mushrooms and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until tender and slightly browned.
  • Use a slotted spoon to transfer the mushrooms to a small bowl, tenting to keep warm as you cook the ground beef.

Hamburger

  • To the same skillet used for mushrooms, add onions and garlic. Cook for 3-5 minutes until onions are softened.
  • Add ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, seasoned salt, and hamburger seasoning to the skillet. Cook for 8-10 minutes until beef is no longer pink. Drain any excess grease.
  • Stir in cooked mushrooms, remove from heat, and set aside.

Cheese Sauce

  • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add flour and whisk constantly for 1-2 minutes, or until slightly browned.
  • Remove from heat and gradually pour in the milk, whisking constantly. Return the pan to heat and whisk for another 3-5 minutes, or until the mixture thickens.
  • Add salt and garlic powder. Stir to combine. Remove from heat. Add cheeses, stirring to melt.

Assembly

  • To the large pot of noodles, add the hamburger mixture. Stir to combine. Pour the cheese sauce over the pasta and stir.
  • Salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
