Easy Dinner Recipes: Baked Cheeseburger and Mushroom Pasta

This easy dinner recipe has been inspired by a product provided for review.  All opinions are mine and mine alone.

Did you ever have one of those days? You know the kind where you have to install an occupancy sensor switch in the bedroom, edit a video, go to the grocery store, take your daughter her shoes because she forgot them, and generally make sure the house doesn’t fall down around you? I am not sure why, but I seem to be having more and more of those days lately and dinner is starting to take a back seat to everything else. After resorting to frozen pizza twice last week, I decided that something needed to give and I started searching for easy dinner recipes for those days when my schedule is absolutely crazy.

Since I just received this Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven a few days ago, I wanted to see what kind of easy dinner recipes I could make in it. The Apple Abracadabra Cake was so amazing that I knew dinner would be just as good. I decided to try this Baked Cheeseburger Pasta recipe except I left out the pickles and added mushrooms instead which turned it into a Baked Cheeseburger and Mushroom Pasta recipe.

This is unbelievably amazing and my son actually requested that I make this again soon.  That doesn’t happen that often so this is definitely one I will be making again.
