One Pot Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole

I made this recipe back in 2014 for the first time. This time I made 1/2 the recipe and we had enough for dinner and a little leftover.

One-Pot. That is what I like for a Sunday night recipe. Dinner came together in less than 30 minutes and did I mention only one pot to wash. Okay, there was also a measuring cup and a cutting board, and a knife.

Two thumbs up from the other side of the table.

4 strips bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
3/4 pound ground beef
1/2 onion, diced
1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/2 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 cups beef broth
2 tbsp ketchup
1/2 tablespoon yellow mustard
1/ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
4 ounces pasta
Salt and pepper to taste
3/4 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.
