Sloppy Joe Casserole with Noodles

This sloppy joe casserole with noodles recipe gives you all the barbeque flavors plus gooey cheese and we snuck in some vegetables too.

This is a complete meal that is made in a kettle, then transferred to a casserole dish, topped with cheese, and baked.

One Pot Meal

If you prefer, skip the baking, and make everything in one pot.  Rather than transferring to a baking dish, after the Velveeta cheese has been stirred in, just add the shredded cheese on top. Cover and cook on low until the cheeses are all melted.

Make Ahead Easy Casserole

This is one of those recipes that can be made all the way up to the baking step. Just assemble the casserole and top with the cheese.

Cover and refrigerate up to 3 days before baking. When ready to bake, take the casserole out of the refrigerator and let it sit on the counter to come to room temperature before putting in the hot oven.

Freeze the Sloppy Joe Casserole with Noodles

Once assembled in the baking with, let cool and cover tightly. Freeze up to three months.

If freezing, I like to use the disposable foil baking pans if I plan on freezing this rather than baking right away. It is easier to heat.

If I plan on giving this casserole to someone, I use the foil pans as well. Freeze ahead of time and write the baking instructions on the foil with a marker. Make sure to wrap with a few layers to make sure that this is securely covered for freezing.
