Cheeseburger Pasta.

This evening I bring you a quick and easy dinner.  It's also tasty and went well with seasoned tater tots.  I'm guessing this could easily go on my huband's favorite meal list based on ingredients and taste.  I'd be willing to add it to mine for ease of preparation.  This recipe is perfect for a week night dinner.  There is minimal prep.  You can make dinner from start to finish in less than 30 minutes!

Cheeseburger Pasta
(adapted from Campbells)
1 lb ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 small can cheddar cheese soup
1 1/4 cup beef broth
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup ketchup
2 cups uncooked small pasta
salt, pepper, garlic to taste

Brown ground beef and onion in a large skillet.  Add cheddar cheese soup, beef broth, water, ketchup, and pasta.  Over medium heat, bring to a boil and then cook while stirring frequently for 10 minutes or until noodles are cooked.  Remove from heat and allow to cool/thicken for 5-10 minutes.  Serve alone or with french fries or tater tots.

Again, this is super simple and tastes good.  It's sure to be a hit with kids and adults alike.  You could easily add mushrooms for added flavor and texture or omit the onions if you have a non-onion eater in your household. Either way - enjoy!

I made this recipe, only I didn't have cheddar cheese soup. I shredded cheddar cheese and used some fat freesour cream and added a few fresh tomatoes. It was excellent.
