Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef, onion, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and garlic in the hot skillet until beef is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  3. Stir tomatoes, ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, salt, and pepper into ground beef mixture; reduce heat and simmer until heated through, about 10 minutes.
  4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook corn in the boiling water until cooked through, about 5 minutes; drain.
  5. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain.
  6. Mix corn, pasta, and Colby-Jack cheese into ground beef mixture; pour into a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes.

We enjoyed this. I did use elbow macaroni and added some worcestershire sauce to the tomato mixture. I also used a bit more brown sugar than called for. I used a blend of cheddar cheeses. Turned out like an old-fashioned casserole, stretching 1 lb of hamburger to feed 6 or 8 with a nice serving.

OK, love the idea ... too sweet for me, kids asked for seconds. I'd leave out sugar and maybe just tomato paste and adjust the sweetness with the sugar if needed. I tried to balance with vinegar and then worcestershire sauce after the fact. It mostly worked. I only had a green pepper so used carrots & celery, diced very small, which worked well. I didn't add corn because it was already to sweet. Also used whole wheat penne which nobody complained about. So, all in all a solid kid-friendly meal, but tweak the recipe if you don't like your dinner too sweet.

It was so easy to make and everyone loved it. :) The only thing I did different was taking out the bell peppers and brown sugar. I added everythig else and it came out really good. Oh and I add more cheese when it came out of the oven. :) Well I hope everyone enjoys this simple but tasty dish. :D

If you like sweet you will probably like this better than me. The ketchup, being high in sugar, mixed with the brown sugar made it really sweet.
