Philly Cheesesteak Casserole Recipe
My dear husband loves anything Philly Cheesesteak! It is funny when we haven't quite made it to Philadelphia to try an authentic traditional classic Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich quite yet. We were planning to go this past spring on a National Park road trip but then well 2020 happened and we had to cancel our trip.
Having an authentic Philly Cheesesteak in Philadelphia is high on John's food bucket list. Until we get there I love making fun cheesesteak dishes at home. I have honestly put cheesesteak in a little bit of everything.
Have you tried our Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers or Philly Cheesesteak Crescent Roll?
I wanted to make a fun new twist that would work perfectly for leftovers for John's lunch. This Philly Cheesesteak Casserole Recipe is packed with meat and pasta making it super filling. There are over 2 pounds of ingredients in this casserole!
I love how quick and easy this casserole is to make. After a few minutes of getting the ingredients prepped and then the oven takes over.
- Steak-Umms Sliced Steak
- Rotini Pasta
- Provolone Cheese slices
- Green bell peppers
- Beef Broth/Stock
- Creamy Mushroom Soup
- Olive Oil
- Salt and pepper
Optional - Mushrooms, lean ground beef
Cheese - You can easily switch the slices of provolone cheese for cheddar cheese or your favorite cheese.
Pasta - The pasta can be switched out for keto pasta or low carb pasta.
Pasta Pot - to cook the rotini pasta in
Large Skillet/Large Pot - You want to use a skillet or pot that is big enough to handle all of the ingredients being mixed together and not have them fall over the side. I use a 5 quart saute pan and love it
Measuring tools - teaspoon and tablespoons, measuring cups.
9X13 Baking Dish - a large casserole/baking dish is perfect for this casserole. You want it to be big enough to handle all of the ingredients.
Wooden Spoons - I like to use a couple of spoons to help stir all of the ingredients together and add them to the casserole dish.
Heat resistant potholders - A couple of years ago we had a fire scare when we didn't realize we had turned a burner on and a cloth potholder caught fire. Thankfully we walked by the kitchen and saw the smoke and were able to get it out ourselves. Since then we have only used these heat-resistant potholders.
Vegetable Chopper - I am going to admit that I cry when I cut onions. Not a cute cry but more of my eyes get red and I look a hot mess anytime I have to dice onions. Enter in this epic vegetable chopper which now makes onions and veggie prop a breeze.
This recipe can easily be adapted to what you have available in your house.
If you don't have Steak-umms you can use sliced steak or hamburger in this recipe. Just make sure to brown the ground beef mixture before adding it to the Philly Cheese Steak Casserole.
I used sliced provolone cheese because that was all my grocery store had available. This would be fantastic with shredded provolone.
This could easily be made with gluten-free pasta. I used rotini pasta but you could also use penne or any sturdy pasta.
Don't forget to preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
You can add in Worcestershire sauce for more flavor and also garlic powder.
If you want a creamier casserole you can add in some cream cheese with the mushroom soup.
Cook the onions and peppers over medium-high heat before adding in the steak-umms or ground beef.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
