Philly Cheesesteak Pasta
This easy dinner recipe for Philly Cheesesteak Pasta is a cheesy comfort food dish that will become a new family favorite!
If you thought my Philly Cheesesteak Baked Egg Rolls were good, you are in for a treat today. So, things have been a little bit crazy around here. Time is flying by with a newborn baby and I can’t believe it’s August already! I have to admit that I haven’t been cooking a lot lately. Mr. Wishes has been saving our dinners with grilling out – I guess that’s a perk to having a new baby in the summer! This Philly Cheesesteak Pasta is one those meals I dream of having again soon.
My poor baby Eliza got diagnosed with a dairy allergy a couple of weeks ago so I won’t be enjoying this Philly cheesesteak pasta anytime soon, but I can guarantee it will be one of the first meals I make when she outgrows the allergy, along with my Sloppy Joe Macaroni and Cheese! A meal loaded with pasta and cheese is the greatest that it gets.
A cheesesteak, also known as a Philadelphia cheesesteak, Philly cheesesteak, cheesesteak sandwich, cheese steak, or steak and cheese, is a sandwich made from thinly sliced pieces of beefsteak and melted cheese in a long hoagie roll. I have made Philly Cheesesteak Dip in the past When I saw it in pasta form I had to make it! I first saw this meal on my friend Lisa’s Instagram page (Wine and Glue blog).
I immediately took a screenshot of it so that I remembered to make it. I rarely see a photo of food and immediately think to myself that I NEED to make it ASAP but it definitely happened. It took me about two days to go to the store to get the ingredients to make it. It did not disappoint, let me tell you!
I mean, just looking at the photos makes it obvious that is one is going to be a keeper for years to come. I also have my eye on this Philly Cheese Steak Hasselback Chicken from my friend Amy. Delicious!
If you’re into the cheesy pasta dishes that only use ONE pot, this One Pot Chili Mac and Cheese is one that has made it to the top of my list. Also, if you haven’t had my Homemade Hamburger Helper, it’s time to change that.

- Drain noodles, save ½ cup of liquid.
- Melt the butter in skillet, cook the garlic clove for thirty seconds being careful not to let it burn, then add the bell pepper and onion and cook about 5 minute or until translucent.
- Add in the ground beef, season with salt and pepper, and cook until beef is no longer pink.

Oh, I hope you are able to enjoy dairy again soon! We must be on the same wavelength – my family and I just made cheesesteak pasta on Monday night for dinner! 🙂
This looks great! The cheesier the better!
What is the red in the picture? Tomato or red pepper?
That is red pepper in the photo.
Wow, this looks good! And very creative. Neat dish — bet it tastes wonderful. Thanks!
This is a really creative pasta. Love the flavors!
SO cheesy, we love fusion dishes!
I love anything involving cheese steak ingredients!
I definitely need to try this!!
What a great dinner idea! Looks so mouthwatering.
I’m afraid I would finish the whole bowl myself!
Loving this comfort food dinner recipe!
This is so good! I added sliced mushrooms too. Thanks for the recipe.
This was so good! The entire family loved it. Thanks for the recipe!
Does the garlic get chopped up and added to the mixture? Or do are we only using the garlic to make the butter taste like garlic?
You don’t drain the hamburger grease?
I use super lean beef but if you don’t then definitely drain it!
Have you ever made this and froze it? Thinking about making it for a friend that just had a baby. Thanks!
I would also like to know if this freezes well!
Yes I think that would be fine.
What is the green flakes? I recognize the red and green peppers but there is definitely green flakes of something not listed
I sprinkled some parsley on the top at the end just for some color for the photo! Good eye!
if I want to double this do I double all the ingredients? and the pasta seems like small portions for 6 people.
Yes, double all of the ingredients.
Definitely a keeper. I omitted the fats and used olive oil cooking spray and definitely drained the ground beef. I did add some cream and a bit of whipping cream when I did the cream çheese. Prior to that the taste was already great. Oh and I added diced tomatoes well drained.
This is in the oven now and I can already tell it is going to be a winner! 🙂
if it is a cheesteak dish can I use sandwich cheesesteaks instead of hamburger
Yes that would work just fine!
This is delicious! I made it tonight but I didn’t have any red pepper so I used 2 green ones.
My son cant have dairy and we use dairy free cheese i get it at my local grocery store
I used steakums instead of ground beef, cooked super fast and it was excellent!!! Great recipe.
I love the idea of using steakums!
Those look yummy. I have to try these now.
Can u use sour cream in place of the cream cheese?
What can I use in place of cream cheese and provolone during the Covid 19 crises?
I used sour cream, you could also try cream of mushroom soup
I have bowtie pasta that I’m trying to use up. Do you think that would work or does it need a thicker pasta?
Yes, that would work great!!
Make this with chipped steak instead of burger, much better and more cheese steak inclined
This was amazing!!!
This recipe looks great, can I use swiss instead of provolone?
My kids and husband LOVED this!
I always add Italian seasoning to Philly Cheesesteak
I love that! Very good!
