Beefy Cheesy Pasta

When I don't have much on hand, this is my go-to recipe. Simple and surprisingly delicious!

Beefy Cheesy Pasta

1/2 pound lean ground beef
1 onion, diced
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
5 cups rotelle (spiral) pasta
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter
5 slices processed American cheese (This works but I usually used grated cheddar)

1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook beef, onion, soy sauce and garlic until beef is brown and juices run clear.
2.While beef is cooking, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
3. Return cooked pasta to its pot over low heat; stir in milk and butter. Stir in beef mixture until well combined. Stir in cheese slices, one at a time, until melted. Serve at once.
Here are my results:
