Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta


1 (8 ounce) package uncooked tube or spiral pasta
1 pound ground beef
6 slices bacon, diced (pre-cooked bacon works nice too!)
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed tomato soup, undiluted (tomato sauce is fine too.)
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (I use about 2c cheese)
barbecue sauce and prepared mustard, optional (Adds SUCH good flavor! I start with a squirt of each then taste. Should be a bit sweet, a bit of zing.)

1.Cook pasta according to package directions.
2.Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain and set aside.
3.In the same skillet, cook bacon until crisp; remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels. Discard drippings.
4.Drain pasta; add to the skillet. Add soup, beef and bacon; heat through. Sprinkle with cheese; cover and cook until the cheese is melted. Serve with barbecue sauce and mustard if desired.

Made it with ground turkey tonight - can't hardly tell! Defrosted the meat while I cooked the bacon, which was frozen too so I chopped it in pieces and cooked it straight from frozen. Worked like a charm! Yum.

And I used whole wheat pasta.
