#SundaySupper, Main Dish | August 16, 2015 | By

For most people the start of the new year is marked by the ball dropping in Times Square but for some of us, it begins in early September ~ the start of the school year. First day of school pictures taken in the driveway, wearing new outfits and shoes yet to be broken in, anxiously waiting for the bus to come. It’s an exciting time but hectic at the same time. Not to worry. The crew at #SundaySupper has you covered for back-to-school lunches, after school snacks and quick and easy meals like this One Pot Bacon-Cheeseburger Pasta for those busy nights when getting dinner on the table seems like a pipe dream.

Wasn’t it just 5 minutes ago school let out and dinner meant juicy burgers hot off the grill, cheese oozing down the side and maybe an ear or two of corn? This One Pot Bacon-Cheeseburger Pasta has everything our family likes in a smoky, grilled cheeseburger — hearty ground beef, ketchup, mustard, bacon, lettuce, tomato and even pasta and Smoked Gouda cheese your family will love. Because everything is cooked in one pot clean-up is so easy your kids may even fight over who gets to wash that pot . . .okay, maybe not, but one can dream, right?one pot bacon cheeseburger pasta

Step 1:

Drizzle a little olive oil into a dutch oven or stock pot and warm over medium-high heat. Drop in the ground round in one slab. Let it sear a few minutes until it start to caramelize then turn it over and do the same on the other side. This little trick really add flavor. 

Step 2:

Next drop in the onion and saute a couple of minutes while breaking up the meat with a golden spoon. Give it a good seasoning with salt and pepper and cook until the meat is browned. If you have excess great, drain it off, then stir in tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce and continue cooking another 2-3 minutes.

Step 3:

Pour in the can of diced tomatoes with its juice, tomato sauce, ketchup and mustard. Give it all a good stir until it’s blended, then add the beef broth and uncooked pasta.  Put a lid on, bring it to a boil, then reduce the  heat to low and continue cooking 8-10 minutes (per directions on pasta box) or until the pasta is al dente. If you find the mixture is getting too thick and the pasta isn’t finished cooking yet, add the remaining 1/2 cup of beef broth.

Step 4:

When the pasta is al dente, remove the pot from the stove and blend in the cream cheese and one cup of the Smoked Gouda cheese, stirring until combined. Taste and adjust salt and pepper as desired.  Sprinkle the remaining Smoked Gouda over the top and broil 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbly. Add the bacon and continue broiling another minute or so to crisp the bacon. Garnish with lettuce and tomato just prior to serving.

    This sounds like a great week night dinner. I bet the leftovers are good too! I remember getting new shoes every year and how destroyed they got. It’s amazing how nice shoes stay when I don’t wear them all day long.

      You’re right — pasta is one of those things even better reheated. It’s nice as adults to have so many more shoe options (you can never have too many pairs of shoes) so they don’t get worn so easily!
