This Ground Beef and Broccoli Casserole combines hearty ingredients into a comforting and savory dish. Featuring lean ground beef, tender broccoli, and a creamy Alfredo sauce topped with a generous amount of cheese, this casserole is perfect for a filling family dinner that’s easy to prepare.


  • 5 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 cup diced yellow onions
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 16 oz jarred Alfredo sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Fresh chopped parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). This temperature will ensure that the casserole cooks through evenly and the cheese melts perfectly.
  2. Prepare the Broccoli:
    • Steam the broccoli florets until just tender, about 3-4 minutes. Alternatively, you can blanch them in boiling water for 2 minutes then drain well. Set aside.
  3. Brown the Ground Beef:
    • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef until it’s no longer pink, breaking it up into small pieces as it cooks. Once browned, drain any excess fat.
  4. Sauté Onions and Garlic:
    • In the same skillet, add the diced onions and minced garlic to the beef. Cook until the onions are translucent and the garlic is fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Combine Ingredients:
    • Add the steamed broccoli to the skillet along with the jarred Alfredo sauce and Italian seasoning. Stir to combine all the ingredients thoroughly and heat through.
  6. Assemble the Casserole:
    • Transfer the beef and broccoli mixture to a greased 9×13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with the shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheeses.
  7. Bake:
    • Place the casserole in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and slightly golden on top.
  8. Garnish and Serve:
    • Remove the casserole from the oven and let it sit for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired for a touch of color and freshness.
