If you read the post below, you know that my husband's favorite food is bacon. And he's not kidding--he LOVES bacon. He even bought himself a shirt that says "bacon makes everything better." He's constantly asking me to add bacon to things. So every once in awhile, I make this totally-bad-for-you-but-tastes-so-good bacon pasta recipe that I picked up at a church pot-luck. Last night was one of those nights....
Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta
-About 8 oz uncooked spiral or tube pasta. I use half a box of whole wheat tubes.
-1 pound ground beef
-6 strips of bacon, cooked and diced. OR, you can be a slacker like me and use 3/4 of the package of bacon pieces (not bacon bits) in the salad dressing aisle.
-1 can (10 and 3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup, undiluted.
-At least one cup shredded cheddar cheese.
Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, brown ground beef in a medium to large size skillet. Drain the fat off the beef. Add the can of soup and bacon to the beef, and turn the heat down to low. Once the pasta is drained and ready, add the pasta to the bacon/beef/soup mixture, and stir together. Sprinkle with cheese, cover, and cook on low until the cheese is melted.
