If you love cheeseburgers and also happen to love pasta I think you will definitely love this Cheeseburger Pasta recipe.  I actually first made this dish a few weeks ago and posted a pic on Instagram where a few people commented on how good it looked.  So I decided to make it again and share the recipe with you.  Any excuse to make it again as it not only tastes good ts also really easy to make.  Plus this dish is syn free if you use the cheese as your Hex A allowance.  If not, then please remember to syn it.  It has a lot less syns than a cheeseburger meal than *enter burger chain of choice* but it packs a lot more taste! Not too keen on pasta?  Then check out my Burger and Fries recipe.  It’s quite similar but made with home made chips instead of pasta.
