  • 1 box (5.7 oz) Hamburger Helper™ Sweet BBQ
  • 1 can (15.25 oz) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (4 oz)

    In 10-inch skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain.
  • 2
    Stir in water, milk, uncooked pasta and sauce mix (from box) and corn. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.
  • 3
    Reduce heat; cover and simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Remove from heat; stir in 1/2 cup of the cheese.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Serve your BBQ beef pasta dinner with coleslaw and cornbread muffins or rolls to round out the meal.
  • tip 2
    Like a little heat? Use shredded pepper Jack cheese instead of the cheddar.
  • tip 3
    We tested this Cheesy Barbecue Beef Pasta Skillet recipe with canned corn, but feel free to use cooked frozen or fresh corn instead. You will need about 1 3/4 cups corn.
