Cowboy Pasta Salad Ground Beef Recipe

One great thing about this recipes is that it is so versatile. You can make it how your family likes it. You can leave out the onions if they don’t like them. You can change it up by adding in red or green peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, black olives, or mushrooms.

Instead of sharp cheddar cheese you could use shredded Pepper Jack cheese or Colby Jack. This usually disappears quickly at our house but if you have any leftovers they are great for lunch the next day.
