This was quite the dinner.
I probably should have cut the recipe in half.
The recipe does serve 6.
So guess what we are having tomorrow night!
And maybe some for later in the week...
From Closet Cooking, One Pot Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole
4 strips bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 pound ground beef
1 onion, diced
1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
2 cups beef broth
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
8 ounces pasta
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
Cook the bacon in a large pan over medium heat, about 5-7 minutes, set aside on paper towels to drain and drain the grease from the pan.
Cook the ground beef and onion in the same pan over medium-high heat, about 5-7 minutes, and drain any excess grease.
Add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, broth, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and pasta, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer covered until the pasta is al dente tender, about 12 to 15 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper to taste, sprinkle on the cheese and simmer, covered, until the cheese has melted, about 2-3 minutes, and serve garnished with the bacon.
