Hamburger Divan Skillet

My friend made this for me and shared the recipe when I asked.  We made it recently for dinner as well.  This is a delicious, family-pleasing, thirty-minute meal, and a little different from anything we usually eat.  I'll be making this again, yum! 

Hamburger Divan Skillet

Serves 6.

  •  6 oz uncooked spaghetti, broken into 2-inch pieces (1 1/2 cups) 
  • 3 cups frozen broccoli cuts (you can substitute whatever vegetable you want, really.)
  • 1 container (10 oz) refrigerated Alfredo sauce 
  • 1/3 cup half-and-half 
  • 1 1/2 lb lean ground beef 
  • 1 pkg (3 oz) cream cheese, cut into cubes 
  • 1 jar (6 oz) sliced mushrooms, drained (optional, we did not include mushrooms this time, but I plan to next time!)
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz) 
Cook spaghetti as directed on package, adding broccoli during last minute of cooking time. Drain; return to saucepan. Cover to keep warm. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine Alfredo sauce and half-and-half; blend well. Brown ground beef in large skillet over medium-high heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain. Reduce heat to medium. Stir sauce mixture, cream cheese and mushrooms into ground beef. Cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes or until cream cheese is melted and mixture is thoroughly heated, stirring frequently. Stir in cooked spaghetti and broccoli. Cook an additional minute. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese. Makes 6 (1 1/2-cup) servings
