Easy One Pot Sloppy Joe Pasta Recipe

Do you LOVE Sloppy Joe’s? If so, you will love this Sloppy Joe Pasta recipe! This is an easy one pot weeknight meal that is sure to please even your pickiest eater.

First off, I did not grow up eating sloppy joe’s. My mom wasn’t a fan, and somehow I made it through my entire childhood never even trying a sloppy joe. Crazy!

As an adult, I finally got my first chance, and I will admit…I wasn’t super impressed. I’m not a huge fan of the “sweetness” of sloppy joe’s. Maybe if I had grown up with that flavor profile, it would be different?

I’m really not sure.

(Did you grow up with Sloppy Joe’s? Love them? Maybe you need this t-shirt, haha!)

However, I had this recipe at a friend’s house a few years ago and it totally WORKED! I loved it!

As a mom, I also love it because it is one pot, is pretty flexible and it makes enough for a crowd. (here are some other one pot meals you might enjoy: Chicken with Rice, Slow Cooker Chicken, Broccoli and Stuffing or One Skillet Chicken Thighs with Red Wine Vinegar. )

If you, like me, aren’t a huge fan of the sweetness of sloppy joes, decrease or even omit the brown sugar in this sloppy joe pasta recipe. It will be amazing regardless!
