Cheeseburger Pasta Casserole: One Pot Meal Cooked in Clay!

Cheeseburger Pasta Casserole: One Pot Meal Cooked in Clay!

Usually casseroles are made in the oven, but I like to adapt them for VitaClay because the clay always makes my dishes taste so great, and I don't have to babysit the food while it cooks.

I don't even have to be home! Or awake! I can run errands, take a nap, or go pick up my kid from school while dinner is cooking. Who knew?

I also like to take certain flavors and put them into unexpected dishes, such as the case for this cheeseburger casserole I made in my VitaClay.

Cheeseburgers are super yummy, but when you get that cheeseburger flavor and put it into something unexpected, like soup or a casserole, it's like a big, yummy surprise!

Everybody loves that kind of surprise. Let  us know what you think!
