Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta

8 ounces uncooked penne pasta
1 pound ground beef
6 bacon strips, diced
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
Barbecue sauce and prepared mustard, optional

Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain and set aside.

In the same skillet, cook bacon until crisp; remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels. Discard drippings.
Drain pasta; add to the skillet.
Stir in the soup, beef and bacon; heat through.
Remove from the heat and sprinkle with cheese.
Cover and let stand for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
Serve with barbecue sauce and mustard if desired. 

Yield: 4-6 servings.

Meghann's notes: I use more bacon and more cheese than called for, and a squirt each of barbecue sauce and mustard.
