Easy One-Pot Sloppy Joe Noodle Skillet – A nostalgic nod to Hamburger Helper, yet with fresh ingredients and a whole lot more flavor and appeal!


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 large onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef (or ground turkey)
  • 2 – 15 ounce cans diced fire roasted tomatoes
  • 15 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar (or coconut palm sugar)
  • 1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce (I used Franks RedHot.)
  • 12 ounces wide egg noodles (could be gluten free)
  • 1-2 cups shredded mexican blend cheese


  1. Place a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the butter, onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Saute for 3-4 minutes to soften. Then push the veggies to the edges of the pan and add the ground beef. Break the ground beef into small pieces with a wooden spoon. Brown the meat, moving it around the pan, for 4-5 minutes.
  2. Add two cans diced tomatoes and one can tomato sauce to the pan. Use an empty can to add 15 ounces of water to the pan. Then stir in the brown sugar, worcestershire sauce, vinegar, and hot sauce.
  3. Stir in the noodles and make sure they are well submerged. Then cover the pan and simmer for 5-8 minutes until the pasta is cooked through. Taste, then salt and pepper as needed. Sprinkle cheese over the top and serve warm!

    This pasta dish seems way better than any Sloppy Joe sandwich I ever had as a kid.

      Hi Amy,

      Oh dear! Can you tell me if you are on a desktop computer or on a phone so I can try to fix the problem?

    I made this for dinner tonight and we really liked it! One note in case anyone’s like me and only had a pound of ground beef: I used one less can of the tomatoes but everything else was the same. It came out a little soupy so I think when I make it again I’ll try it with a half can of the water and see how that goes. Thank you for the recipe!

    Love that it only takes 20 mins to cook! I’ve been trying to prep meals during the weekend so these go even faster (in this case, cut up the onion & pepper and put in baggie until day of cooking).
