Have you ever had one of those nights where you’re just too tired to plan a meal or even bother going to the grocery store?

That was me last week. I had about 3 of those nights right in a row which made cooking dinner quite a challenge. I was in complete lazy mode and found myself just piecing together whatever ingredients I had on hand. In most cases those meals come out just barely edible but sometimes, just sometimes I stumble onto a recipe that’s worth making again. In this case it was a Sloppy Joe Casserole that turned out to be quite tasty and is a nice change from the typical sloppy joe sandwiches.

Sloppy Joe Pasta Recipe

Sloppy Pasta Bake
Cook Time
Total Time
Serves: 6
  • 1 box rotini pasta
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 can corn, strained
  • 2 cans Mamwich sloppy joe sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. Boil pasta, strain and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Brown ground beef with onions and peppers until fully cooked, strain and put it back in the skillet over medium heat.
  4. Add corn and sauce to ground beef and cook for 5 minutes or until hot.
  5. In a large baking dish, combine pasta and sauce.
  6. Sprinkle with cheese and bake for 15 minutes until the cheese is melted.

While I was in lazy cooking mode I also happened to be lazy about after dinner clean-up too. I ended up leaving my casserole dish hanging out on the dishwasher door all night long and woke up to a crusty mess. A year ago I would have grumbled about having to let the dish soak in hot soapy water all day but not these days. I had been through just about every dishwasher detergent on the market before I discovered Finish® Quantum®.

It was the first pre-measured packet that actually cleaned like it claimed. The before and after picture below pretty much says it all but these really are my miracle product in the kitchen. Even with a dish as crusted as the one below, I never have to use a long power cycle, pre-rinse or soak any dishes. I just let the Finish do the work for me and it never fails.

    I would never have thought to use sloppy joe sauce in a casserole but it’s a really good idea! I’m using a liquid detergent right now and it does a pretty good job, but I’m impressed with how great your dish looks after having that pasta in it.
