Cheeseburger pasta in a cast iron pan on the table

My youngest grandson was staying with me this weekend and said “Grandad, can we make cheeseburger pasta like Mummy makes”?

I have never heard of cheeseburger pasta but guessed it was some kind of pasta bake. He is a fussy eater so it had to be tasty but definitely not spicy or peppery otherwise he won’t touch it.

A quick call to my daughter-in-law and this really easy midweek family dinner was going in the cookbook.
