Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta

Greg made the dinner I had planned for tonight (I had a terrible headache) and he said this was pretty easy to make but a little time consuming with having to cook everything seperate and then all together as well. We really enjoyed this though. This is a GREAT alternative to hamburger helper.

8 ounces Uncooked tube or spiral pasta
1 lb Ground beef
6 Strips bacon, diced
1 can Condensed tomato soup, undiluted
1 cup Cheddar cheese
Cook pasta according to directions on packages. Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain and set aside. In the same skillet, cook bacon until crisp; remove with slotted spoon to paper towels. Discard drippings. Drain pasta; add to skillet. Add soup, beef and bacon, stir and heat through. Sprinkle with cheese; cover and cook until the cheese is melted. Serve with BBQ sauce and mustard if desired.
Sandy's Notes: I add 1/2 can water along with the tomato soup, makes it more moist. Definitely serve with BBQ sauce and yellow mustard. It's a strange but delicious taste sensation!
Please excuse the coloring of the photo, I had to use my flash.
