Cheeseburger Pasta

This recipe was shared with me by Sierra!

1/2 package bacon, cut into pieces

1 bag corkscrew pasta
1/2 lb ground beef
3/4 cup BBQ sauce
1/4 cup ketcup
1/4 cup water

(This makes the perfect amount for two people with leftovers for lunch the next day!  If you are cooking for four or more people you may want to double the recipe.)

Place bacon on a baking sheet, and bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes (depends on how crispy you like it).
Boil pasta per noodle directions.
While pasta is boiling, brown your ground beef in whatever seasonings you like.  I like onion, garlic powder, seasoning salt, and pepper.  Drain the grease.  When bacon is ready, remove from oven and place on paper towels to soak up as much grease as you can, then add to the ground beef.  Add your BBQ sauce, ketchup and water and heat through on medium heat, until the sauce thickens a bit.

Combine noodles and sauce and top with cheese.
