Philly Cheesesteak Pasta

Philly Cheese steak pasta.
I’m blessed enough to get WIC, so I had whole wheat pasta, shredded mozzarella, onion and a green pepper I got from WIC.
I bought 1 lb hamburger ($1.99). 1 jar Alfredo ($1.88).

Philly Cheesesteak Pasta


  • 1 lb whole wheat pasta (provided by WIC)
  • 1 lb ground hamburger ($1.99)
  • 1 jar Alfredo sauce ($1.88)
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced (provided by WIC)
  • 1 green pepper, thinly sliced (provided by WIC)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (provided by WIC)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish


1. Cook the Pasta:

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Cook the whole wheat pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.

2. Prepare the Meat and Vegetables:

  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the ground hamburger to the skillet. Break it apart with a wooden spoon and cook until browned and cooked through. Remove the cooked meat from the skillet and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Add the thinly sliced onion and green pepper. Cook until they are soft and slightly caramelized, about 5-6 minutes.

3. Combine Pasta, Meat, and Vegetables:

  • Return the cooked hamburger to the skillet with the onions and green peppers.
  • Pour the jar of Alfredo sauce over the meat and vegetables. Stir well to combine and let it simmer for a few minutes until everything is heated through and well mixed.

4. Combine with Pasta:

  • Add the cooked whole wheat pasta to the skillet. Toss everything together until the pasta is well coated with the Alfredo sauce and mixed evenly with the meat and vegetables.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remember, the cheese and Alfredo sauce might already have some salt, so taste before adding more.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat.

5. Add Shredded Mozzarella:

  • Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over the top of the pasta.
  • Cover the skillet with a lid and let it sit for a minute or two until the cheese melts and becomes gooey.

6. Serve:

  • Once the cheese is melted, give the pasta a final gentle toss.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and freshness.
